The aim of this project is to determine how new renewable energies, such as wave power and solar photovoltaics (PVs), can be included in the planning and operation of electricity systems as a substitute for conventional base-load and intermediate-load electricity generation.
A capacity credit has been associated with wind power in Denmark, but not with solar PV and wave power.

Provided that the capacity credit is the amount of thermal capacity that would be displaced by a variable renewable energy portfolio, it is the purpose of the project to find the capacity credit for three different scenarios in 2020, 2035 and 2050, including wind, wave and solar PV.

The results of the project can ultimately lead towards an improvement of existing rules and methods of system planning and system operation.
