Book Description :

In recent years, many nations have invested in renewable energy in an effort to improve sustainability and to reduce CO2 emissions. At present, most renewable resources are subsidized or paid a feed-in tariff. As renewable resource construction increases, subsidies will become unsustainable. Some European countries have already cut these subsidies. Hence renewables will eventually participate in energy markets the same way as conventional generators. Saudi Arabia is in the process of introducing an electricity market, as the single Saudi Electricity Company will be divided into several competitive companies. The Saudi government is also investing heavily in renewable energy, especially after the establishment of King Abdullah City for Atomic and Renewable Energy (KACARE), as KACARE is strongly dedicated to studying and deploying new renewable energy projects in Saudi Arabia. The Saudi national oil company (Aramco) is leading this effort and has already built two solar power sites: a 2 MW-peak PV plant site at King Abdullah University, and a 10 MW-peak PV plant site in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. Unlike conventional generators, renewable energy interacts differently with electricity markets because of its stochastic nature. This will be challenging, as renewables are likely to face some penalties for energy mismatch. Having a high level of renewable penetration will be a challenge for the System Operator (SO) to balance the electricity market compared with having only conventional generation. This interaction is not well understood. Therefore one of the major challenges is to understand how existing market structures will accommodate renewables when they can compete in the market, and how future market structures can be designed to incorporate renewables better. Based on KACARE’s vision, the estimated solar energy capacity in Saudi Arabia will reach 41 GW by 2032 while the estimated wind energy capacity will reach 9 GW by 2032 compared to a power capacity for the conventional power of 69 GW in 2013. The reason for the heavy investment in solar energy is that Saudi Arabia experiences a high value of solar irradiance throughout the year. Therefore, this research will focus principally on solar energy participation. Energy market structures differ in details but can generally fit in two major electricity market pricing schemes: the Marginal Pricing (MP) scheme and the Pay-as-Bid (PAB) scheme. The focus of the work in this dissertation is to compare the current practice of dealing with solar power in both market schemes. Then, the more attractive scheme for solar power will be investigated thoroughly to determine existing and suggested features that could be incorporated in the Saudi market to better motivate solar power plant construction in Saudi Arabia.

Book Description :

Energy markets are already undergoing considerable transitions to accommodate new (renewable) energy forms, new (decentral) energy players, and new system requirements, e.g. flexibility and resilience. Traditional energy markets for fossil fuels are therefore under pressure, while not-yet-mature (renewable) energy markets are emerging. As a consequence, investments in large-scale and capital intensive (traditional) energy production projects are surrounded by high uncertainty, and are difficult to hedge by private entities. Traditional energy production companies are transforming into energy service suppliers and companies aggregating numerous potential market players are emerging, while regulation and system management are playing an increasing role. To address these increasing uncertainties and complexities, economic analysis, forecasting, modeling and investment assessment require fresh approaches and views. Novel research is thus required to simulate multiple actor interplays and idiosyncratic behavior. The required approaches cannot deal only with energy supply, but need to include active demand and cover systemic aspects. Energy market transitions challenge policy-making. Market coordination failure, the removal of barriers hindering restructuring and the combination of market signals with command-and-control policy measures are some of the new aims of policies. The aim of this Special Issue is to collect research papers that address the above issues using novel methods from any adequate perspective, including economic analysis, modeling of systems, behavioral forecasting, and policy assessment. The issue will include, but is not be limited to: Local control schemes and algorithms for distributed generation systems Centralized and decentralized sustainable energy management strategies Communication architectures, protocols and properties of practical applications Topologies of distributed generation systems improving flexibility, efficiency and power quality Practical issues in the control design and implementation of distributed generation systems Energy transition studies for optimized pathway options aiming for high levels of sustainability

Book Description :

Many countries, reflecting very different geographies, markets, and power systems, are successfully managing high levels of variable renewable energy on the electric grid, including that from wind and solar energy. This book documents the diverse approaches to effective integration of variable renewable energy among six countries: Australia (South Australia), Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Spain, and the United States (Colorado and Texas), and summarises policy best practices that energy ministers and other stakeholders can pursue to ensure that electricity markets and power systems can effectively co-evolve with increasing penetrations of variable renewable energy. There is no one-size fits all approach; each country has crafted its own combination of policies, market designs, and system operations to achieve the system reliability and flexibility needed to successfully integrate renewables. Notwithstanding this diversity, the approaches all coalesce around five strategic areas: lead public engagement, particularly for new transmission; co-ordinate and integrate planning; develop rules for market evolution that enable system flexibility; expand access to diverse resources and geographic footprint of operations; and improve system operations. This book also underscores the value of countries sharing their experiences. The more diverse and robust the experience base from which a country can draw, the more likely that it will be able to implement an appropriate, optimised, and system-wide approach.

The purpose of this analysis is to provide the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) with an overview of renewable energy (RE) generation markets, transmission planning efforts, and the ongoing role of the BLM RE projects in the electricity markets of the 11 states (Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming) that comprise the Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC) Region. This analysis focuses on the status of, and projections for, likely development of non-hydroelectric renewable electricity from solar (including photovoltaic [PV] and concentrating solar power [CSP], wind, biomass and geothermal resources in these states. Absent new policy drivers and without the extension of the DOE loan guarantee program and Treasury's 1603 program, state RPS requirements are likely to remain a primary driver for new RE deployment in the western United States. Assuming no additional policy incentives are implemented, projected RE demand for the WECC statesby 2020 is 134,000 GWh. Installed capacity to meet that demand will need to be within the range of 28,000-46,000 MW.
