The combined power plant provides stable power from renewable energies

A stable power supply is precision work. The transmission and distribution system operators provide this precision work by providing so-called system services, to ensure a stable and secure network operation. So far, the network operators have to provide the system services primarily by using natural gas, coal, and nuclear power plants. In a system with more wind and solar power, biomass, hydropower and geothermal energy, the renewable energies have to prove that they can also provide a stable electricity generation and transportation. The Combined Power Plant 2 is going to demonstrate that even in a system with only renewable energies a safe and reliable network operation is possible, and that there will be no threat of a power failure.
The first renewable combined power plant, whch was build by scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy and Energy System Technology and numerous partners from industry and science, has shown that the demand for electricity can be met solely from renewable energy sources combined with storing. The new pilot project "Combined Power Plant 2" will now prove that  100 percent renewable energy, combined with energy storage can also provide stable networks - without any fossil fuel or nuclear power generating capacity.
