Short-term integration costs of variable renewable energy: Wind curtailment and balancing in Britain and Germany

Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, 2018, vol. 86, issue C, 45-65

Abstract: Britain and Germany saw unprecedented growth of variable renewable energy (VRE) in the last decade. Many studies suggest this will significantly raise short-term power system operation costs for balancing and congestion management. We review the actual development of these costs, their allocation and policy implications in both countries.
