OptFlex Biogas - Profit through Flexibility

New results: Flexible power generation under the current energy policy framework conditions is economically viable for flexible biogas plants. However, the optimal flexibility strategy and mode of operation is individual for each plant.

Leipzig, June 22, 2016 - The project "OptFlex Biogas - Determination of a technically and economically optimised operation of flexible biogas plants (FKZ: 03KB073)" dealt with the questions of the optimal operation and flexibilisation strategy and the influence of the flexibility premium. The results now published show that flexible power generation is economically viable under the current energy policy conditions for the plants investigated. However, the optimal flexibilisation strategy and mode of operation must be determined for each individual plant.
