Open ENTRANCE workshop: Flexibility options in low-carbon scenarios for European energy system
The H2020 project Open ENTRANCE developed four European scenarios which aim to limit the global temperature increase to 1.5°C to 2.0°C.
The power system will include very high shares of wind and solar resources. In periods where the wind is not blowing or the sun is not shining, other solutions are necessary to balance to power system. This workshop provides in-depth insights about the impact on the power system of such measures as flexibility in demand, communities of actors, large-scale utilisation of batteries, pumped-hydro storage and seasonal storage in underground rocks.
The results further demonstrate how the Open Modelling Platform from Open ENTRANCE can be used. This Platform includes open and linked models as well as open data for the energy system in each country in Europe, and is another topic of the workshop.
