Abstract

Non-conventional renewable energy technologies are already a key element in the expansion of many power systems. These resources, whose deployment was fostered through different types of support mechanisms in the last decades, must now be integrated as much as possible in all the segments of the electricity market. Where capacity mechanisms are in place, renewable technologies should be involved in these mechanisms in the same way as any other technology. Renewables would thus not only be able to receive a capacity remuneration, but would also be subject to the commitments that a capacity contract entails.
