Summary
When wind power plants serve load within the host balancing area, there is no additional capacity that is required to integrate wind power into the system. The wind energy displaces conventional generators' energy, which may result in emission and fuel savings, or make it possible to sell additional energy to other customers outside the balancing area. This provides a benefit to the sellers and customers. When wind serves load outside of the host balancing area, there can be additional capacity requirements, but these will depend in part on the length of the market period: faster markets will mitigate this requirement, whereas slower markets will exacerbate this capacity requirement. We develop a series of very simple thought experiments to illustrate and discuss some implications for wind integration studies
