Network Stability with Wind and Bioenergy, Storage and Loads

The University of Greifswald is involved in a central work package which is part of the focal point “energy” in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern’s Research Excellence Programme. The successful proposal “Netz-Stabil” will investigate important questions for the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, as a state of renewable energies, which deal with how a stable and secure provision of energy can still be attained without the use of fossil fuels and therefore mainly based on a fluctuating production of energy (wind and solar power). Under the coordination of the University of Rostock, the project will look at which types of energy plants, such as wind parks and biogas plants, storage possibilities and concepts for technology control, can contribute to stabilising the networks and how these facilities can be optimised by further innovations.
The University of Greifswald’s task, being coordinated by the Chair of Public Law, Financial Law, Environmental and Energy Law and the Institute for Climate Protection, Energy and Mobility as an affiliated institute, will be to analyse the possible technological solutions from a legal and economic point of view. “This groundwork should help to develop suggestions for adjustments to the legal and political framework on both a national level and within the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern,” says Prof. Dr. Michael Rodi.

Excerpt from the jury’s vote:

“The project draft examines how different types of systems such as wind power plants, biogas plants, storage possibilities and interruptible demands can contribute to network stability. (...) The consultants are particularly pleased to see the participation of the Chair of Systematic Theology and Religious Philosophy in the project. That means that the foundations for the further development of network stability go further than simply an engineering point of view."
