Economic solutions for the integration of volatile renewable power generation are crucial for a socially accepted energy transmission. So-called energy-flexible factories can efficiently adapt their electricity consumption process to the generation of electricity. These adjustments can support system balancing and counteract local grid bottlenecks.
As part of the Kopernikus project, the potential, obstacles, effects and opportunities of an energy-flexible factory were examined holistically in the Augsburg model region. The summarized results are available in the paper following this link.
The FfE contributed the residual load curve f0r the model region in the years 2035 and 2050 among other things (see figure 1).
