Transcript of 2. hubert lemmens elia

  • 1.Implementing Agreement DayBrussels, 06/12/2011 Hubert Lemmens, Chief Innovation OfficerUnique situation in the EUOwnershipElia 100% of 380-150kV network 94% of high voltage network (70-30kV)50Hertz 100% of 380-220kV network- 34% of the German 380kV network- 19% owner of the German 220kV networkAge of networksElia Less than 10 years for 50% of underground cables Less than 20 years for 50% of lines & substations50Hertz Around 10 years for 90% of the network (refurbishedafter German reunification in 1989)06/12/20112

Elia with 50Hertz = TOP 5 TSO in Europe 110 to 380 kV lines & cables13,431km 30 to 70 kV lines & cables 4,800km Number of substations 8722 Area covered (km ) c.143,000 Direct customersc.130 Residents covered >29 million Employees (FTE)c.1,800 Regulated Asset Base (RAB)5,097mCritical mass to play a leading role in futuredevelopments06/12/2011 3Drivers for Innovation Elia grid in the center of Western Europe Strongly meshed between large power systems of France andGermany Subject to loopflows between French nuclear plants and Germanwind Management driven positioning in Europe Strong Elia involvement in TSO cooperation Phase Shifting Transformers on Belgian borders Lead in European Wind Integration Study06/12/2011 4 3. TSOs have to boost R&DBusinessneeds due tointegration of renewables EWIS, etc.European Electricity Grid Initiative (EEGI) 2000 20102020203006/12/2011 5 European Strategic Energy Technology Plan ccs FCH Smart CitiesEWI NUCLEAREEGI European Electricity Grid Initiative BIOSOLAR606/12/2011 6 4. EEGI One of the pillars of the SET plan Leading role by Elia Includes T and D topics 2 b to be invested in R&D during 2010 - 2018 T-topics embedded in Entso-e R&D plan Accepted by EC and member states during SET plan conference inJune 2010 Reference program for R&D in grid related matters.06/12/2011 7 Some achievements and ongoing actions: a few examples06/12/2011 8 5. European Wind Integration Study (EWIS) Duration June 2007- April 2010 (34 months) An EC SmartGrids project (FP6) Competent Market Model Partner SUPWISci Northernconsortium UK & Ireland Close cooperation with external stakeholders: Network operators (TSOs and DSOs) Wind power producers and turbineBALTIC developers Market participantsCENTRAL WESTCENTRAL EAST Relevant studies and working groups on Wind integration SOUTH EAST - TradeWind, IEA-Task 25, GreenpeaceSOUTH WEST study, EC Working group for Offshore/CENTRAL SOUTHonshore grid development, EWEA WG Grid Codes, PLEF, Wind on the grid Consumers Regulatory representatives National Governments and authorities06/12/20119Flexibility 3 phase shifters in the Van Eyck &Zandvliet HV station Improved control of neighbouring energy flows on the Elia grid for an improved reliability Optimisation of transmission capacity with interconnected networks The next step is to coordinate the operation of power flow devices taking into new regulatory issues06/12/2011 10 6. Cross border Coordination CORESO : Regional Coordination Service Center (RTE, ELIA, National Grid, 50 HzT, Terna)www.coreso.eu Re-optimizing power grid(max SoS & transm cap) operational safety of the system, massive integration of renewable(wind energy) development of the electricity marketin the Central-Western Europe (CWE)06/12/201111Enhanced overhead lines using thesame right of way 150kV line (approx 600 MVA) versus insulated arms 380kV line ( up to 5000 MVA)06/12/201112 7. TWENTIES - Flexgrid GOAL: Better integration of renewables Ampacimon More stable and flexible grid KUL: OptimalStabilityULg: Dynamic Power flowMargins Line Rating PMU Control devices ULB: WAMS Help establish Good Operating Practices06/12/2011 13On-going R&D projects with EC support 7MW-WEC-by-11 Estinnes (WindVision, Enercon, Sarens, ELIA,ENECO, 3E, K.U. Leuven, TSO Cyprus, EAC - Ancillary Services delivery (Voltage control and Secundary Control) OPTIMATE (Elia, ENBW TNG, REE, RTE, 50 HzT) - A simulation platform to analyze electricity market design options involving transmission constraints, results by end 2012 Ecogrid (SINTEF, Energinet.dk, Ostkraft, DTU-CET, Elia, Eandis,Siemens, IBM Research, Labein, AIT, ECN, UoT, EnCT) - A Smart Grid prototype for the Future06/12/2011 14 8. Conclusions Fight against climat change pose important challenges on ElectricitySystem Transmission System Operators play a central role in the change Elia Group is willing to contribute Availability of human resources is crucial We welcome international cooperation.06/12/2011 15Vielen Dank fr Ihre Aufmerksamkeit.
