Spinning Reserve

Spinning reserve is the power generation capacity which can be activated on decision of the system operator and which is provided by devices that are synchronized to the grid and able to affect the active power. In order to do that, power plants have to be operated below maximum rated capacity. This causes reduced cost effectiveness and potentially an increase in specific emissions.

In power systems with very high shares of renewables, the tasks of spinning reserve can no longer be delivered by conventional power plants. Either renewable power generators operating below rated capacity or energy storage systems can be used.
