Table 3 Scenario framework for the case study including the three scenarios

From: Impact of flexible bioenergy provision on residual load fluctuation: a case study for the TransnetBW transmission system in 2022

Energy source Year 2022
Capacity (CAP) Annual energy production
[MW] [TWh/a]
Wind 1900 2.9
Solar PV 8900 8.6
River hydro 1000 6.0
Other renewables 200 0.9
Bioenergy
 Scenario NO-BE 0 0
 Scenario NON-Flex-BE 639 5.6
 Scenario Flex-BE  
  - Flexible solid biomass (cluster 1) 102 0.5
  - Flexible biogas, liquid biofuel CHP (cluster 2) 530 2.2
  - Remaining BE must run 333 2.9
