Germany's Independence from Nuclear Energy will be Driven by Smart Grid

Summary

Our report “Germany's Independence from Nuclear Energy will be Driven by Smart Grid” provides an analysis on how Germany's transition from nuclear energy to renewable energy resources will be supported by smart grid technologies. The roadmap developed by Germany to achieve this by 2022 will encourage the deployment of smart grid technologies. Smart grid can help to reduce the adverse effects of renewable energy integration into the grid on neighboring grids, and various research and demonstration projects on energy storage technologies such hydrogen, Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) and Pumped Hydro Storage (PHS) are taking place to this effect. Smart grid technologies such as Flexible Alternating Current Transmission System (FACTS) and Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) devices will boost stability and reliability, and the increased load can be managed with the help of smart grid mechanisms such as demand response. This will provide sufficient time for renewable technologies to mature enough to compete with nuclear generation in terms of price.
