The focus of this chapter is mostly on short-term integration issues and the corresponding need for ancillary services. Here we should remember that policy and regulation influence the need for balancing. Shorter gate-closure times in the power market, for instance, allow better forecasting and create the opportunity to re-dispatch generators before the need for balancing arises. Allowing new actors into the market, especially from the demand side, also helps providing the required services at the lowest possible cost.
