Abstract

With a growing share of fluctuating renewable energies, such as wind and photovoltaics, predictable power generation capacities become more and more important. In parallel, the decarbonization of the energy sector calls for additional balancing energy technologies. We developed an operation strategy that enables run-of-river hydroelectric (ROR) plants to deliver both constant load and balancing energy at the same time. This becomes possible, because the upstream reservoir levels of most plants can, to a certain extent, be flexible, without making further impacts.
