Future power systems with today's weather

published on 2024/01/24

This website simulates how a future fully-renewable power system would behave with today's demand and weather. Here is the actual wind and solar generation from the past 10 days in Germany:

In the scenarios below the wind and solar generation is scaled up to projected capacities for a fully renewable system.

The feed-in of wind, solar, existing hydroelectricity, batteries and hydrogen storage is optimised to meet demand. The model can only see 24 hours ahead. The long-term hydrogen storage is dispatched assuming a constant hydrogen value (e.g. 80 €/MWhLHV).
