Abstract [en]

This thesis considers the effect of a large scale wind power introduction into an electricity system and the focus has been on the carbon dioxide emissions. Two different systems were studied, the Swedish and the Danish electricity system. When studying the Swedish electricity system different scenarios were created to see what might happen with the CO2 emissions with an introduction of a large amount of wind power. The model that was used is based on parameters such as regulating power, transmission capacity, export possibility, and the electricity generation mixes in the Nordic countries. Given that the transmission capacity is good enough, the conclusion is that the carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced with a large scale introduction of wind power. In the Danish electricity system wind power is already introduced to a large extent. The main purpose here was to investigate the development of the CO2 emissions and if it is possible to decide the actual change in carbon dioxide emissions due to the large scale introduction of wind power. The conclusions to this part are that the CO2 emissions per kWh produced electricity have decreased since the electricity generation mix has changed but the total amount of CO2 emissions fluctuates depending on weather, in a dry year less hydro power from Norway and Sweden can be used and more electricity from the fossil fuelled CHPs are generated. It has not been possible to determine the influence of the wind power on the CO2 emissions.
