Abstract

The goal of this paper is to assess and quantify the sustainability of interdependent electric power infrastructures, focusing on the interaction of microgrids with a regional transmission/distribution grid. The Northwestern European electricity market (Belgium, France, Germany and the Netherlands) is used as a case study for our purposes. We present simulations of power market outcomes under various policies and levels of microgrid penetration, and evaluate the hypothetical microgrids using three types of sustainability indices (economic, environmental and thermodynamic).
