Integrating high shares of renewables, while reducing the share of conventional generation such as coal and nuclear power plants, bring new challenges to the Japanese power system. With the increase of variable renewables in Japan, concerns have indeed started to rise regarding their impact on grid stability and solutions have been investigated to incentivize sufficient flexibility in the system.
This study, conducted jointly by Renewable Energy Institute and Agora Energiewende, investigates the potential of renewable integration in Japan from the viewpoint of frequency stability and power flows analysis. It is based on a modelling and simulating tool-chain of the Japanese power system developed by Elia Grid International and Gridlab for this project with the objective to facilitate independent research from third parties. Two scenarios were compared in the study for 2030: the government’s target scenario, and a more ambitious scenario.
On the occasion of the study report to be announced, this symposium will focus on issues and challenges of the Japanese electricity system, with the invited experts from Germany and Japan.
