Abstract

Summary

In recent years there has been a rapid expansion in wind energy production within the Nordic countries, and its share in total energy production in the region can be expected to rise further in the coming decades. A drawback of wind energy is the variation in supply which results from natural changes in wind conditions. Geological energy storage is an enabling technology which can be used to buffer variations in wind energy supply and, hence, it has the potential to increase the competitiveness and reliability of wind energy and facilitate its future development. This study provides an overview of the geological energy storage opportunities in Sweden, Denmark and Norway based on the recent research efforts to assess large-scale energy storage potential in Nordic geological formations.
