Economic Aspects of Wind Power in Power Systems

Abstract [en]

The integration of large amounts of wind power into the energy system requires a strong interplay with power markets. In this respect the power exchange is an important instrument, defining a single market clearing price for each trading period. Following the liberalisation of the EU electricity industry power markets are increasingly being organised as power exchanges to a certain extent following the same lines, where a number of if not identical then closely related services are being provided. Using the NordPool power market as an example this chapter outlines the basic characteristics of the two key markets, the day-ahead market and the regulating market. The determination of the day-ahead price is described and the impact of wind power on power prices investigated. Finally, the cost of regulation is addressed.
