Reducing CO2 Emissions


A frequent concept proposed towards obtaining carbon zero emission is to greatly increase the proportion of Variable Renewable Energy (wind+solar) in the electricity generation mix. Because of the production variations due to weather fluctuations this requires either massive storage capacity to save the peaks production for the wind off period or large over capacity and curtailment of the peak production curtailment of the peaks. This page presents exercises to explore these options.

The United Kingdom has adopted the goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2050, which is the objective in the UN Climate Change Conference Paris Agreement. This target is based on recommendations of the UK Committee on Climate Change and is the basis of the plans of the UK National Grid. Achieving this goal requires massive adjustments to all sectors of the economy as well as the power generation sector which is the focus of this website.

Denmark is the largest European country where wind+solar energy dominants the electricity generation. To compensate for the large wind fluctuations it has a large dependence on imports which are 17% net over the year but often much greater for short periods
