The production of renewable energy is steadily going up, and as a result of the (almost) zero-marginal cost renewables, the marginal cost based electricity prices go down. While the need for backup generation increases due to the fluctuating availability of renewable energy, the generation units that supply electricity during demand peaks see...

With an increasing wind and photovoltaic share, the German generation mix becomes more weather-dependent. Backup technologies can help to bridge scarcity moments. These rare moments with high prices are the main events for their cost recovery. However, the uncertain revenue flow combined with long payback periods leads to high investment...

With an increasing share of photovoltaic and wind in the German generation mix, the power supply reduces its CO2 emission and becomes more weather dependent. In order to guarantee the security of supply, the volatile power output by the renewables asks for compensation by other sources. These backup technologies have to cope with a variety of...

The effectiveness of a capacity market is analyzed by simulating three conditions that may cause suboptimal investment in the electricity generation: imperfect information and uncertainty; declining demand shocks resulting in load loss; and a growing share of renewable energy sources in the generation portfolio. Implementation of a capacity...

We analyze the effectiveness of a forward capacity market (FCM) with long-term contracts in an electricity market in the presence of a growing share of renewable energy. An agent-based model is used for this analysis. Capacity markets can compensate for the deteriorating incentive to invest in controllable power plants when the share of...

The push for clean energy has caused a rapid growth of renewables in the electricity supply mix of the EU. Although one would assume that the impact of these technologies is entirely positive, recent research and experience indicate that there is reason for concern namely regarding the security of supply. In this context, the concern is how...

Capacity remuneration mechanisms (CRMs) are “climbing” regulatory agendas in all liberalised power sectors, especially in the European Union. CRMs are introduced to improve system reliability and to minimise power shortages to an economically efficient extent. These schemes will have a central role in future power systems. This PhD thesis...

Given the current vulnerability of the profitability of power plants to price volatilities and government policy changes, the role of risk considerations in power plant investment decisions becomes increasingly important. However, when we look at simulation studies that look into the long-term impact of different policy designs on electricity...

There is increasing concern that energy-only markets are inadequate when it comes to ensuring generation adequacy in the power sector over the long term. This is reflected in the fact that several Independent System Operators have commissioned studies about security of supply over the last few years; OFGEM and CEER (Council of European Energy...

In response to plans in France and the UK to implement a capacity mechanism and the recent implementation of a small strategic reserve in Germany, we address the question of the cross-border effects of national implementation of a capacity mechanism in Europe’s interconnected markets. We model some of the effects that may arise when different...

The topic of this dissertation is the regulation of gas infrastructure expansion in the European Union (EU). While the gas market has been liberalised, the gas infrastructure has largely remained in the regulated domain. However, not necessarily all gas infrastructure facilities – such as gas storage facilities, LNG import terminals and certain...

Two aspects of investment in generation capacity in liberalized electricity markets are investigated: the question of whether investment will be sufficient to meet society's goals for the reliability of electricity supply (generation adequacy) and the question of how to coordinate investment in electricity generation capacity in a competitive...
