Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
They apparently built a complex grid and production model, but there are a lot of assumptions there and the tested scenarios are aimed at certain outcomes. I note in particular:
  • they assumed a specific constant price of CO2,
  • they treated hydro and biomass as being operated on a must-run basis,
  • they assumed additional renewable capacity will have the same geographical distribution as in 2010 [it's already significantly different today...],
  • they assumed the same hourly generation profiles in their projections of increased production as in the chosen three days from 2010 data.
