Integration of renewable energy and the benefit of storage from a grid and market perspective - results from Morocco and Egypt case studies

Abstract

This paper presents results from case studies of the future power systems in Morocco and Egypt, with a high increase in renewable generation capacity. Datasets representing 2030 scenarios have been generated and studied with a simplified grid-market model that takes into account variable renewable generation, energy storage and electricity grid constraints. Simulation results for Morocco and Egypt are studied and compared, with emphasis on the benefit of energy storage.
