Thesis title:

The impact of high levels of renewable generation on conventional fossil fuel based electricty markets. 

Project:

As electricity systems incorporate increasing levels of variable renewable generation, conventional plant will be required to operate more flexibly, with potential impacts for economic viability and reliability. This research project seeks to improve the understanding the impacts of renewable generation upon the power plants of Northern Ireland and the opportunities for conventional sources of generation to help accommodate the high levels of planned renewables.
