Regulating Curtailment

Key Messages

  1. Curtailment is a valuable system flexibility option and should be compensated
  2. Curtailing and compensating RES can be cheaper than taking up 100% of RES electricity through investment into conventional plant park or transmission
  3. Ukraine should start with a simple heuristic to estimate curtailed energy and later introduce a more precise method based on weather data
