Study on flexibility options to support decarbonization in the Energy Community

Study on flexibility options to support decarbonization in the Energy Community

The Energy Community Secretariat has selected Trinomics and Artelys for the study of flexibility options to facilitate the integration of renewable energy sources and support decarbonization in the Energy Community towards 2040. The quantitative analysis was conducted by Artelys using the energy market model Artelys Crystal Super Grid. Future flexibility needs are analyzed and cost-optimal portfolios of flexibility solutions are determined considering a wide range of scenarios in terms of the deployment of variable renewable energy sources (vRES), coal-fired power generation phase-out and levels of interconnection capacity. All Contracting Parties (except Georgia) were modelled jointly with the EU power market area. The study highlights that no additional investments into flexibility would be needed by 2030 even in the most ambitious vRES deployment scenario. It also emphasizes that cross-border integration of power networks and markets decreases the need for investments in flexibility solutions in 2040 and drives down electricity system costs and CO2 emissions.

Positive externalities of hybrid heat pumps – Benefits not valuated in the current pricing system

Positive externalities of hybrid heat pumps – Benefits not valuated in the current pricing system

The French National Low Carbon Strategy sets ambitious objectives for decarbonization of the building sector through a strong electrification of heating use. Purely electric heat pumps are thus widely used in housing and are preferred to hybrid heat pumps. However, the hybrid heat pump (air/water heat pump with a gas condensing boiler as a back-up) offers benefits that do not seem to be fully exploited. In this context, GRDF commissioned Artelys to conduct a study to identify incentives for the development of hybrid heat pumps. To this end, the study estimates the value brought to the energy system by hybrid heat pumps compared to heat pumps with an electrical back-up, and then compares this system value to the value perceived by the consumer. The study has highlighted a significant imbalance between the benefits of hybrid heat pumps to the energy system and the current pricing signals to consumers. Indeed, the current pricing system does not make possible to take advantage of the load shedding capacity of hybrid heat pumps when the electricity network is very constrained, particularly during periods of extreme cold. A first reflection on economic incentive measures is then carried out for consumers to benefit from the advantages of hybrid heat pumps.

Does phasing-out Russian gas require new gas infrastructure ?

Does phasing-out Russian gas require new gas infrastructure ?

The European Climate Foundation has selected Artelys to investigate the need for new gas infrastructure in the perspective of a Russian gas imports phase-out by 2025. The Russian-Ukrainian conflict has driven demands for the European Union to reduce imports of Russian gas as soon as possible. It requires the EU to consider how to best allocate investments in order to reduce the EU’s dependence in a structural way. In this context, Artelys has compared two scenarios: a first strategy prioritizes investments in LNG import capacities, a second one combines energy efficiency measures, renewable deployment and flexibility solutions. The analysis of both scenarios was conducted using the Artelys Crystal Super Grid platform. This study identifies that the implementation of the measures proposed in the Fit-for-55 package would enable the EU to largely exit Russian gas by 2025. It also identifies that additional European clean energy investments provide the best path forward to ensure full security of supply for a Russian gas phase-out. From a total system cost perspective, a clean energy solution scenario is cheaper than a gas-based solution scenario. It also succeeds in reducing CO2 emissions in the long-term.  

Modeling and optimization of the French and European electricity mix 2020-2060

Modeling and optimization of the French and European electricity mix 2020-2060

ADEME, the French energy and environment agency has selected Artelys to build and analyse power systems scenarios in coordination with its “Transition(s) 2050” project. Four multi-energy carbon-neutral pathways have been built for France. Artelys has set up a detailed model able to represent power generation, demand dynamics (including flexibility) and internal networks, with infra-national granularity, from 2020 to 2060. System dimensioning and operations have been jointly optimised from 2020 to 2060, with a 5-year timestep, ensuring robustness via hourly granularity over 9 weather scenarios. The simulation results allow to derive the following key findings: the transition to energy mixes more reliant on RES-e leads to a more evenly distributed power generation system compared to today’s situation. In order to limit network reinforcements and the costs of flexibility provision, investments in generation have to be planned jointly with network developments. Notably, commissioning renewables in best-LCOE areas (disregarding network constraints) leads to higher overall costs. Along with the reinforcement of interconnectors and the increase of cross-border exchanges, the development of demand-side flexibility is key to ensure that the power system functions in a cost-efficient manner. Electric vehicles’ smart-charging and electrolysers’ flexible operations, notably, are crucial to adequately integrate renewables. The key modelling assumptions can be found in a dedicated leaflet.
