Partner papers are written by a single institute, i.e. elaborated unilaterally. The corresponding texts are not necessarily coordinated with other WindNODE partners prior to publication. The quality is assured by the authors/institution or if necessary by an external editor. Partner papers are published in the layout of the respective institute.
Peer review papers are unilaterally elaborated documents that have undergone a WindNODE-internal quality assurance process in the form of a peer review by other WindNODE partners. The partners provided expert feedback on the document, which was taken into account. Peer review papers are published in the original layout of the institute and provided with a uniform (turquoise) WindNODE jacket, also published here.
Signature papers are elaborated in the scope of the WindNODE Coordinating Committees and are intended for the higher-order merger of the findings of the partner project. The Coordinating Committees perform continuous quality assurance and coordination of the documents. Signature papers are published in a uniform (white) WindNODE jacket.
Peer review paper: Market design, regulation and overall efficiency of flexibility in the power system
The WindNODE peer review paper “Market design, regulation and overall efficiency of flexibility in the power system” describes the status quo of the interaction between power market and grid as well as the legal framework regarding the activation of flexibility for the electricity system. Furthermore, using a practical example, the challenges in exploiting the flexibility of industrial processes are outlined. Furthermore, the quality effect of flexibility on the overall system is analysed, focussing on the consideration of industrial end consumers.
Peer review paper: incubation programmes in the energy industry
In the scope of WindNODE, the Borderstep Institute for Innovation and Sustainability, in cooperation with Berlin Partner for Business and Technology studied so-called incubation programmes to promote start-ups in the field of the Green Economy. For the study, 12 programmes with 18 sites in total were identified in seven federated states which have funding priority in the Green Economy sector. Among other things, the study shows that Berlin is the start-up capital of Germany and has the most incubation programmes in the field of energy. In addition, the study works out success factors for effective incubation programmes.
Signature paper: “Flexibility” thesis paper
The WindNODE signature paper on “flexibility” was written after the synthesis of findings in the field of action “Flexibilities, Market and Regulation”. The presented theses reflect the position of relevant WindNODE players on central issues of today’s debate about flexibility. In the further course of the project, the six theses presented here will be studied and substantiated individually and in more detail.
