Regional components for renewable energy remuneration

Expert report on behalf of the Monopolies Commission in preparation for the 77th Special Report "Energie 2017" of the Monopolies Commission

In a report on behalf of the Monopolies Commission, the EnCN electricity market model is used to analyze the long-term effects of the regulatory framework of the electricity market on investment and production incentives in network and generation capacities. The focus is on various scenarios for the regional expansion of renewable energy plants. The study shows that consumption-orientated, decentralized locations lead to a higher system efficiency in comparison with the currently forecasted locations, which are primarily geared to the optimal output of the plants. Regional components in renewable energy remuneration can enable consumption-orientated locations.
