KRAFTUTVEKSLING I EN LAVUTSLIPPSFRAMTID: HVORDAN TILRETTELEGGE FOR SALG AV FLEKSIBILITET OVER KABLENE?

Trondheim Høgskoleringen 5, Trondheim

Torsdag 20. april 2017 arrangerte Norsk forening for energiøkonomi og den norske avdelingen av IEEE Power & Energy seminar om kraftutveksling og fleksibilitet. Seminaret ble holdt hos Statkraft på Lysaker og ledet av Gerard Doorman, Statnett/NTNU. Bakgrunn: Den sterke økningen i elproduksjon fra vind og sol gir store utfordringer for kraftsystemet. En nøkkelutfordring er fleksibilitet – hvilke løsninger er tilgjengelige og hvilke vilkår krever de for å levere den fleksibiliteten som store og raske variasjoner i fornybar produksjonen nødvendiggjør? Norsk kraftproduksjon har en unik fleksibilitet, men ligger “innestengt” bak HVDC kabler med begrenset kapasitet. Seminaret fokuserer primært på økonomiske rammebetingelser og utfordringer for å kunne realisere verdien i den norske fleksibiliteten.

Globalt, så konkurrerer den lave kostnaden for energiproduksjonen fra solcellepaneler ut alle andre energikilder. I kombinasjon med fallende kostnader på batterier er skiftet fra sentralisert til distribuert solenergi som et skifte i energi-bransjens tektoniske plater. I presentasjonen gir Solenergi FUSen en oppdatering om markedssituasjonen og viser utviklingen som fører til disse endringene. 0940: Pause 1000: Hywind Tampen prosjektet, Lars Juhani Ådnanes, Electrical Specialist, Equinor Nedlasting: LJÅ_IEEE_Hywind Tampen_2019.11.06_norsk Equinor planlegger å tilknytte offshore, flytende vindturbiner til Snorre og Gullfaks feltene. Dette prosjektet har fått mye oppmerksomhet og intereresse. Denne høsten ble prosjektet tildelt 2300 MNOK fra ENOVA. Foredraget presenterer bakgrunn og valg av tekniske løsninger. Hvilke muligheter og utfordringer ligger i dette? 1040: Diskusjon og avslutning. Bakgrunn: Et vedvarende stort fokus på fornybar energi gir resultater. Utbygging av landbasert sol og vindkraft skyter fart, og det ligger an til utbygging av offshore vindkraft i norsk farvann – både bunnfaste møller (Havsul) og flytende (Hywind Tampen). Vindkraftutbyggingen er omstridt, det har sommerens utfordringer på Frøya vist til det fulle. Som en del av planarbeidet med vindkraftressursen har NVE utarbeidet et forslag til nasjonal ramme for vindkraftverk. NVE vil presentere bakgrunn og prioriteringer knyttet til denne planen. Solkraften brer om seg i Norge. Store bedrifter viser vei og etablerer pilotprosjekter for miljøvennlig elektrisitetsproduksjon. I Vestby har ASKO montert solcellepaneler på taket til sine store lagerbygninger. Solenergi FUSen har vært med på utbyggingen. På norsk sokkel er Hywind Tampen prosjektet i medvind. Enova vil bidra med støtte for å få erfaring med å forsyne oljeplattformer med elektrisk kraft produsert med vind. Seminaret passer for alle som er opptatt av eller jobber i energibransjen.

FLEXIBILITY MARKETS – UNLEASHING THE POTENTIAL OF DISTRIBUTED RESOURCES (21TH OCTOBER 2020)

The Norwegian section of IEEE Power & Energy invites to the seminar Flexibility Markets – Unleashing the potential of distributed resources Wednesday 21th of October 2020, 13:00-15:10 Place: Online Webinar Chairman: Erick Fernando Alves, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), IEEE Power & Energy, Norge All Transmission System Operators in the Nordic system operate under the principle of the most socio-economic valuable solutions for balancing demand and generation. For that to happen in this new context, consumers and generators must be able to provide their flexibility to the market. In other words, they must be able to alter and sell their flexibility in demand and generation according to system operation needs. Moreover, aggregation of flexibility services also lays out the enhanced role of Distribution System Operators, particularly in procurement of ancillary service, flexibility, data management and integration of electric vehicles. In this event, we will hear from different actors on how they are tackling these challenges and working towards digitizing and modernizing the electricity grid for higher efficiency, flexibility and resilience. AGENDA 13:00 “Welcome“, Erick F.

Professional meeting regarding Norway’s hydrogen strategy

Trondheim Høgskoleringen 5, Trondheim

  NEF Trondheim group and IEEE Power & Energy Norway invite to Professional meeting on Norway's hydrogen strategy Wednesday 5 May 2021, 18: 00-19: 30 Webinar on MS Teams https://tinyurl.com/78hht75w Chair Erick F. Alves, NEF Trondheim / IEEE PES 18:00 Introduction Erick F. Alves 18:05 Hydrogen electric aviation: hype or flop? Jonas K. Nøland, NTNU Aviation is now at an intersection. Hydrogen as a fuel has recently been estimated as one important factor in enabling zero-emission aircraft. The presentation examines the competitiveness of different hydrogen-electric propulsion systems. It is shown how the choice of technology is very dependent on the flight segment one is looking at. The ordering solutions are those that adequately combine energy efficiency and power density, and maximize possible synergies on board. The most fuel-saving solution is to go for all-electric propulsion. 18:25 HAEOULUS and Raggovidda: How to start a hydrogen valley? Federico Zenith, SINTEF Digital A fundamental difference between battery and hydrogen is that hydrogen infrastructure does not exists in the first place. It is therefore extra challenges to use hydrogen, as more actors must coordinate their measures, preferably under the auspices of public bodies. We will see how the construction of a hydrogen factory in Finnmark will be completely up and how experiences can be transferred to other areas. 18:45 Green hydrogen: benefits and challenges for the electric power system Espen Flo Bødal, NTNU / SINTEF Energy Hydrogen production by electrolysis can help balance energy bar and enable the utilization of remote, high-quality renewable resources. In order to achieve a high proportion of renewable energy in the power system, we may be dependent on flexibility from electrolytic hydrogen production, but this depends on local conditions. 19:05 Discussion 19:30 Closing NEF Trondheim and IEEE-PES Webinar Norway's hydrogen strategy 5 May 2021 Background Hydrogen is an energy carrier that can contribute to emissions and to create value for Norwegian business and industry. In order for hydrogen to be a low- or emission-free energy carrier, it must be produced with no or very low emissions, such as by electrolysis of water with pure power, or from natural gas with CO2 management. Technology maturity and high costs are today key barriers to increased use of hydrogen, especially in the transport sector and as an input factor in parts of the industry. If hydrogen and hydrogen-based solutions such as green ammonia are to be used in new areas, the technology and solution must become more mature. Further technology development is important. In its recently published strategy, the government set an important goal to increase the number of pilot and demonstration projects in Norway, by contributing to and supporting technology development and commercialization. There is a broad focus on zero-emission technologies and solutions throughout the policy instruments, and many see hydrogen as and of the possible new industrial events in Norway. But what is the challenge we have ahead? We have gathered several talented people from the research community in Trondheim to give you a better overview.
