Risk preparedness: EUGINE contribution to the public consultation

As centre of knowledge for engine power plant technology and electricity market design, EUGINE is pleased to have the opportunity to express its views on risk preparedness in the area of security of electricity supply. For EUGINE, "Member States should have a plan to adapt the power system to the most relevant challenges on the supply side. This naturally includes the increasing need for flexible power generation. Among the supply side measures, Member States should for example assess the ‘variations risk preparedness’ of the power system. Using the criteria of ‘start-up’ and ‘ramp-up’ times of generation capacity, they should check whether the installed production capacity would be able to instantaneously cope with a sudden and unexpected variation of the power produced by variable renewable energy sources."
