Abstract

In traditional electricity systems the supply of energy follows the fluctuating demand. Power systems with high shares of fluctuating energy sources like wind and solar power face new challenges: in addition to fluctuating loads, fluctuating generation has to be balanced [1]. This is achieved by the use of flexible generation, storage and power-to-X-technologies. The developed tool uses a simplified method is able to identify the cost-optimal mix of technologies which are able to supply this flexibility to the electricity system. IConcentrated solar power (CSP) is a valuable source of flexibility as it can be easily combined with thermal storage and a co-firing unit guaranteeing electricity production independent of solar irradiation [2]. With the developed method a first estimate on the we are able to identify the value of CSP electricity generation in a system context in comparison to alternative technologies can be given..
