Summary : This addition to the ISOR series addresses the analytics of the operations of electric energy systems with increasing penetration of stochastic renewable production facilities, such as wind- and solar-based generation units. As stochastic renewable production units become ubiquitous throughout electric energy systems, an increasing level of flexible backup provided by non-stochastic units and other system agents is needed if supply security and quality are to be maintained. Within the context above, this book provides up-to-date analytical tools to address challenging operational problems such as: • The modeling and forecasting of stochastic renewable power production. • The characterization of the impact of renewable production on market outcomes. • The clearing of electricity markets with high penetration of stochastic renewable units. • The development of mechanisms to counteract the variability and unpredictability of stochastic renewable units so that supply security is not at risk. • The trading of the electric energy produced by stochastic renewable producers. • The association of a number of electricity production facilities, stochastic and others, to increase their competitive edge in the electricity market. • The development of procedures to enable demand response and to facilitate the integration of stochastic renewable units. This book is written in a modular and tutorial manner and includes many illustrative examples to facilitate its comprehension. It is intended for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in the fields of electric energy systems, applied mathematics and economics. Practitioners in the electric energy sector will benefit as well from the concepts and techniques explained in this book.

Summary : In recent years, many nations have invested in renewable energy in an effort to improve sustainability and to reduce CO2 emissions. At present, most renewable resources are subsidized or paid a feed-in tariff. As renewable resource construction increases, subsidies will become unsustainable. Some European countries have already cut these subsidies. Hence renewables will eventually participate in energy markets the same way as conventional generators. Saudi Arabia is in the process of introducing an electricity market, as the single Saudi Electricity Company will be divided into several competitive companies. The Saudi government is also investing heavily in renewable energy, especially after the establishment of King Abdullah City for Atomic and Renewable Energy (KACARE), as KACARE is strongly dedicated to studying and deploying new renewable energy projects in Saudi Arabia. The Saudi national oil company (Aramco) is leading this effort and has already built two solar power sites: a 2 MW-peak PV plant site at King Abdullah University, and a 10 MW-peak PV plant site in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. Unlike conventional generators, renewable energy interacts differently with electricity markets because of its stochastic nature. This will be challenging, as renewables are likely to face some penalties for energy mismatch. Having a high level of renewable penetration will be a challenge for the System Operator (SO) to balance the electricity market compared with having only conventional generation. This interaction is not well understood. Therefore one of the major challenges is to understand how existing market structures will accommodate renewables when they can compete in the market, and how future market structures can be designed to incorporate renewables better. Based on KACARE’s vision, the estimated solar energy capacity in Saudi Arabia will reach 41 GW by 2032 while the estimated wind energy capacity will reach 9 GW by 2032 compared to a power capacity for the conventional power of 69 GW in 2013. The reason for the heavy investment in solar energy is that Saudi Arabia experiences a high value of solar irradiance throughout the year. Therefore, this research will focus principally on solar energy participation. Energy market structures differ in details but can generally fit in two major electricity market pricing schemes: the Marginal Pricing (MP) scheme and the Pay-as-Bid (PAB) scheme. The focus of the work in this dissertation is to compare the current practice of dealing with solar power in both market schemes. Then, the more attractive scheme for solar power will be investigated thoroughly to determine existing and suggested features that could be incorporated in the Saudi market to better motivate solar power plant construction in Saudi Arabia.

Summary : Renewable Energy - Market and Policy Trends in IEA Countries reviews the experience of IEA countries after the oil crisis in the 1970s initiated a surge of investments in renewables research and development. While use of renewables has grown rapidly, they still account for only a small portion of the IEA energy mix. Hydropower, bioenergy and geothermal energy are mature technologies that contribute about 5 - 6% to primary energy supply. Solar, wind, and other new renewables have experienced rapid technology development, but as yet they represent only a small share.This work examines policies and measures that have been introduced in IEA countries to increase the cost effective deployment of renewables, reviews the objectives behind these policies, and evaluates the results. The aim is to identify best practices in order to assist governments in making future policy decisions.

Summary : The Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (GCC) has been at the epicenter of global energy markets because of its substantial endowment of hydrocarbons. Yet countries in the region have also stated their intent to be global leaders in renewable energy. This collection explores the drivers for the widespread adoption of renewable energy around the GCC, the need for renewable energy and the policy-economic factors that can create success. All six countries within the GCC have plans to include renewable energy power generation in their energy mix for various reasons including: a growing demand for electricity because of increasing populations, an increasing government fiscal deficit due to inefficient subsidies, the need to diversify the economy and global pressure to meet climate change requirements. However, the decision of when and by how much to introduce renewable energy is fraught with complications. In this book, a stellar cast of regional policy and academic experts explore the reasons behind these renewable energy plans and the potential impediments to success, whether it be the declining cost of producing energy from hydrocarbons, an infrastructure which needs to be updated, social acceptance, lack of financing and even harsh weather. Weighing up all these factors, the book considers the route forward for renewable energy in the Gulf region. The Economics of Renewable Energy in the Gulf offers an excellent examination of the adoption of renewable energy in the area. It will be of great interest to academic researchers and policy makers alike, particularly those working in the areas of energy economics, public policy and international relations.
