Solution V: Large-scale storage and new grid operation to defer investments in transmission and distribution grid reinforcement

This solution tackles different options for deferring investments in grid reinforcements while enabling a higher share of renewable generation.  One option to achieve this is by using batteries or other storage solutions, such as power-to-hydrogen or power-to-heat, to convert electricity into another energy carrier that can then be stored or transported, and releasing thus the congested grid. Another solution is by operating the network using dynamic line rating to allow more VRE through the grid, when meteorological conditions allow. Read more
