Every organization faces a different context and has its own challenges with regards to system operations. At EGI, we understand that and we develop tailored-made solutions for your organization.
Integration of renewable energy
Most utilities are now adopting higher penetrations of renewables. While power systems are designed to handle the variable nature of loads, the increasing addition of renewable energy sources causes uncertainty and new challenges for utilities and system operators. Our experts at EGI are constantly improving their skill set by working hand-in-hand with the two System Operators of the Elia Group. This allows us to provide the best support to our partners with regards to:
- Operational requirements related to RES integration
- Sizing of balancing reserves
- Grid codes requirements
- Congestion Management and flexible access
- Renewable Control Center and aggregation of decentralized production
- System stability (inertia, etc.)
In short, EGI can help you to deploy a variety of operational and technical solutions to help integrate higher penetrations of wind and solar generation.
