Eine Flexibilitätsoption im Wettbewerb

Due to the development of renewable technologies it is also necessary to do more for the balancing of the weather-dependent production from wind and sun in the electricity grid. Storage units are a way to integrate the gradually growing use of fluctuating production. But also measures on the supply and demand side as well as the regional compensation through the electricity grid can contribute to an increased flexibility of the energy system. Which combination of these flexibility options will prevail depends on the costs, the energy-economic frame as well as the needs of consumers. Our contribution outlines how a cost efficient interplay of flexibility options is possible without exactly knowing their future development. A key role hereby is the continuous development of the design of the electricity market. In its current form, the energy market already enables the extensive use of existing flexibility options. Yet, as the example of batteries shows, price signals of the market are partly overlain by allocations and fees, making the use of this flexibility option uneconomic at the moment. This insight is also shared by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy, which just published the white paper “An electricity market for Germany’s energy transition” showing first approaches how to develop future flexibilities.
