Why does it become more expensive? •  Wind power dominates forecast errors – fewer hours in “correct” direction. 50% error (= independent) changes to 75 % error •  Higher regulating prices due to higher volumes •  Number of hour without activation of regulating power decreases (to 50%). •  Price areas è imbalances in different areas are not added. 50,00 Scenarier Today 5 GW = 10 - 15 TWh 45,00 12 GW = 30 TWh 40,00 35,00 30,00 kr/MWh 25,00 20,00 15,00 10,00 5,00 0,00 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Aktör Actor22 | Future wind power forecast errors and associated costs in the Swedish power system | Fredrik Carlsson |2012.02.07

  • 29. Conclusions•  Larger volumes of wind power lead to higher forecast errors in the system which results in: -  higher regulating prices -  more hours with regulation -  more hours with regulation correlated to wind power forecast error -  thereby higher costs for balance responsible wind power owners.•  Geographical spread of the wind power leads to lower forecast error which implies lower costs.•  The introduction of price areas leads to lower possibility to counterbalance imbalances between different areas.•  Participation on intra-day market can reduce the imbalance costs with about 20%.29 | Future wind power forecast errors and associated costs in the Swedish power system | Fredrik Carlsson |2012.02.07
