“Statkraft and TenneT cooperate for renewable energy market integration”


Norwegian hydropower company Statkraft and Dutch grid operator TenneT plan to intensify cooperation in the German federal state of Schleswig-Holstein in order to optimise the market integration of wind power, TenneT has said in a press release. Statkraft, “Europe’s largest producer of renewable energy,” and TenneT, one of four major grid operators in Germany, plan to do “pioneer work” to improve wind power’s grid and market compatibility, Statkraft manager Stefan-Jörg Göbel said. Statkraft’s real-time data from seven remote-controlled wind parks will allow TenneT to better gauge the optimal power output of wind turbines, according to the press release.
