The effects of high PV penetration on the Hungarian electricity system

16:00 - 17:30 Online workshop

11 of March, 2021

Solar PV plays a significant role in Hungary's energy policy and decarbonisation plans and are planned to reach more than 10 GW by 2040.

A modelling exercise by REKK commissioned by the Ministry for Innovation and Technology analysed the effects of different solar PV penetration on the Hungarian electricity market with special focus on the need for flexible balancing capacities (including gas fired power plants, electricity storage and demand side management), the effects on whole-sale electricity prices and on electricity imports.

At the online workshop we presented the main findings of the modelling and discussed them with stakeholders of the Hungarian electricity sector.

The results of the modelling and the presentations of the workshop are available- in Hungarian language - here.
