System integration of wind power in North-East China

China | January 2013 - December 2014

Ea Energy Analyses joined a project analysing the energy system in Harbin with the purpose of detecting, investigating, and presenting possible institutional solutions, concepts and technologies for integrating an increasing share of fluctuating wind energy into the district heating / combined-heat-and-power (CHP) system. Wind power was in some periods disconnected due to inflexibility in the electricity system and the existing framework for dispatching the power plants.

The project was managed in coordination with COWI, Harbin and Aarhus municipalities, China Electric Power Research Institute and State Grid Energy Research Institute (SGERI). The project was supported by the Sino-Danish Renewable Energy Development (RED) programme.
