Abstract

Given the expected future penetration of variable renewable energies (VREs), the question arises of how to optimize the utilization of large shares of cheap energy resources while providing sufficient flexibility. This study explores the benefits for Denmark of encouraging flexibility through energy-system coupling and the electrification of district heating systems compared to a strategy in which Denmark mainly relies on its interconnections to balance supply and demand. Using a
partial equilibrium modelling tool representing the electricity and heating sector, the study compares the impacts of both scenarios at Horizon 2050 and assesses their distributional effects in terms of changes to energy technology, electricity spot prices, system costs, the electricity exchange balance and total CO2 emissions.
