Multi-horizon power-market mechanisms and Connection to the wider European energy system

Tildelt: kr 0,25 mill.

The McMee pre-project will form the foundation for a main project within the field of power-market mechanism design and linking to the de-carbonized energy carrier Hydrogen. In order to establish an export industry within this field consisting of both products and services it is important to understand the market mechanisms underlying the future development of the power-market. It is especially important to understand the multi-horizon nature of this market and the implications of stronger connection to other energy carriers and in particular to Hydrogen which is expected to become a major carrier with a market capitalization possibly rivalling that of electricity itself. For many use-cases it is important to understand the emerging dynamics of volume and variability between the different time-horizons in the market. An understanding of the various services and technologies needed to meet the future demands in an ever more integrated European energy system is central. The uniquely hydropower dominated nature of the Norwegian energy system poses both opportunities and threats in terms of the Norwegian ability to export products and services. Norway has a weak coupling between energy carries today. Scenario based analysis will be utilized to identify mechanisms and potentials related to selected use-cases that is deemed to be of interest for Norwegian export industries. The formation of a diverse consortium spanning from universities to export industries (both "technical" and "financial") will be needed both for the successful execution of the main project, but also for the successful exploitation of the potential for export to the global energy systems market. NTNU and SINTEF Energi AS is in a unique position to gather and lead such a consortium with their longstanding collaboration within both academia and industry, their competency base and their non-partisan and long-term commitment to research and development within this field for the good of society.
