Abstract

Installing energy storage facilities is one important aspect of an electricity system supplied to a large extent from renewable energies such as wind and solar power. Another is the electricity networks, which have to be adjusted to fit the new requirements of a system with greater fluctuations in energy supply and demand. This chapter first turns to an analysis of the requirements associated with load control in the distribution grid (Sect. 6.1.1) and the integration of renewable energy and storage facilities into the transmission grid (Sect. 6.1.2). Next, the chapter looks at the costs of an adequate expansion of the network for the distribution grid (Sect. 6.2.1) and the transmission grid (Sect. 6.2.2).
