Publication Category: Conference Papers Publication year: 2009 Activity Type: Hardware / Software Research Area: Super Grids

This work focuses on transmission planning, which will have to change and adapt to new situations and uncertainties mostly represented by market opening from one side and renewable integration on the other side.


Distributed Power Generation in Europe: technical issues for further integration


A. L'Abbate, G. Fulli, F. Starr, S. Peteves
Publication Category: Reports Publication year: 2008 Activity Type: Desktop Research Area: Smart Grids

The present Report focuses on the potential role of Distributed Generation (DG) in Europe. More specifically, this work aims to investigate the developments related to DG technologies and address the technical issues towards the DG integration into the European power systems. The concept of Distributed Generation is characterised for the purpose of the study and the main tehnical challenges are described. Some technical recommendations - at DG unit and at transmission and distribution system level -  for further integration of DG are eventually proposed.

The electric power sector in Europe is currently facing different changes and evolutions mainly in response to the three European Union (EU) energy-related challenges – environmental demand. These issues may also represent drivers for the further penetration of Distributed Power Generation (hereinafter simply Distributed Generation, or DG) technologies in Europe. In fact, several EU countries are already recording a gradual and steady upward trend in deploying distributed power sources.
