Energy System Analysis

Climate change affects the electricity market in many ways. Increasing temperatures gives reduced need for electrical heating, and altered wind-speeds may affect wind-power generation. Altered precipitation will however give the largest climate-change impact on the Nord Pool market because of the large share of hydropower. Previous studies have shown that the geographical and seasonal distribution as well as the annual amount of inflow to reservoirs and run-of-river are affected by climate change. Based on inputs from other parts of the project, the system analysis will quantify renewable electricity production’s variability and sensitivity for climate changes, and detailed analysis of the Nord Pool electricity market for 2020 will be carried out using the EMPS model. We will also study the vulnerability of the system and energy balances.
