New article on Clim2power’s Portuguese Case study

A new article by project partners Filipa Amorim, Sofia G. Simoes, Gildas Siggini and Edi Assoumou is now available on the journal Energy. This paper presents the ongoing research within Clim2Power’s Portuguese case study. Its main goal (as a first step) is to show the relevance of using a highly detailed spatial and temporal modelling tool of the Portuguese electricity system in order to adequately capture climate variability in the planning of the system up to 2050. The authors assess the relevance of using a highly detailed spatial and temporal modelling tool for studying the future evolution of the power system, considering the needs for integrating large shares of variable RES, namely solar and wind.
