|Title:||Optimal interconnection and renewable targets for north-west Europe||Authors:||Lynch, Muireann Á.; Tol, Richard S.J.; O'Malley, Mark||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/4725||Date:||Dec-2012||Online since:||2013-10-11T15:51:10Z||Abstract:||We present a mixed-integer, linear programming model for determining optimal interconnection for a given level of renewable generation using a cost minimisation approach. Optimal interconnection and capacity investment decisions are determined under various targets for renewable penetration. The model is applied to a test system for eight regions in Northern Europe. It is found that considerations on the supply side dominate demand side considerations when determining optimal interconnection investment: interconnection is found to decrease generation capacity investment and total costs only when there is a target for renewable generation. Higher wind integration costs see a concentration of wind in high-wind regions with interconnection to other regions.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Journal:||Energy Policy||Volume:||51||Start page:||605||End page:||617||Copyright (published version):||2012 Elsevier||Keywords:||Electricity interconnection; Renewable generation; Mixed-integer linear programming||DOI:||10.1016/j.enpol.2012.09.002||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
