Electricity grid expansion in the context of renewables integration in the Baltic Sea Region

Wind power and other renewable energy sources will be key to reducing the CO2 emissions from the countries surrounding the Baltic Sea. The transmission grid is a crucial component in the development of the energy system, because it is a pre-requisite for cost-efficient exploitation of the wind power in the region.


Ea Energy Analyses has conducted a study with the purpose to analyse how increasing deployment of renewable energy, in particular wind power, will affect the demand for reinforcement and expansion of the electricity transmission grid in the Baltic Sea Region.


As a part of the project, the most attractive investments in new interconnectors is recommended considering different scenarios for energy and climate policies in the region.


Ea Energy Analyses carried out the study for Baltic Sea Region Energy Cooperation, BASREC from November 2013 to April 2015.
