    Abstract

    One of the challenges in the transition to a non-fossil energy system with a high share of fluctuating renewable energy sources is to secure a well-functioning and stable electricity infrastructure. Today, conventional generation is responsible for providing many of the power system services needed for stable and reliable electricity infrastructure operation. When fluctuating renewable energy sources are taking over, the heating, cooling, gas, and transport infrastructures may be able to provide some of the flexibility needed.
    Closer integration of the various energy infrastructures is thus a means to solve some of the challenges introduced by the broader integration of renewable sources.
    Closer integration and coordination of energy infrastructures might also lead to a more cost-effective energy system with a lower impact on the environment and climate.
    The DTU International Energy Report 2015 discusses these issues and analyses the possibilities for – and challenges to – the wider introduction of integrated energy systems.
