North Sea Offshore Network - Denmark

Project Details

Description

The focal point of the NSON-DK project is how the future massive offshore wind power and the associated offshore grid development will affect the Danish power system in the transition towards a future sustainable energy system. NSON-DK is a Danish part of the North Sea Offshore and Storage Network (NSON) project framework, which has emerged from the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) as a pioneer project framework joining nationally funded research according to the European Commission’s Berlin model.
The objective of the NSON-DK project is to study how the future massive offshore wind power and the associated offshore grid development will affect the Danish power system on short term, medium term and long term towards of the transition towards a future sustainable energy system.
The following research questions will have special attention in the project:
- How will the offshore wind power development affect the variability and uncertainty of variable renewable generation in the Danish power system and neighboring systems?
- How will this increased variability and uncertainty from the offshore wind power development together with onshore renewable generation development influence the balancing and need for reserves in the Danish power system?
- How will the offshore wind power and offshore grid development influence the electricity markets in future systems with large scale energy storage and coordination of the electricity system with other energy systems (mainly heat and transport)?
- How will the scale and architecture of the offshore grid development influence the adequacy and security of supply in the Danish power system?
- Which polity instruments should be applied to support an effective and cost-efficient transition of the Danish power system combining the offshore development with energy storage and coordination between energy systems?
