Tion of renewable energy sources [174, 248]. This effect is increased by the fact that many countries placed their electricity markets under the obligation to favor renewable energy sources over conventional energy sources. This means that first the production of renewable energy sources has to be used, before conventional power can be fed-in. As a result, two effects on the electricity market prices are conceivable. First, an increasing amount of RES might lead to energy price reductions as soon as a considerable amount of wind energy is available [44, 150, 174].

The idea of energy storage is relatively simple. In times of excess energy, the additional energy is stored and used later in times of energy shortage [36, 44]. This also works for optimizing electricity market pricing, by storing energy when energy prices are low and feeding this energy back, when energy costs are higher [36]. 05                       Fig. 11 Available vs. necessary energy storage capabilities (Source: [174]).

As a result, to support a full integration of an increasing amount of renewable energy sources it is necessary to complement changes on the energy grid and demand side management with an increasing flexibility of the electricity market. This includes to facilitate an active cross-border trading throughout Europe, a more market- and situation-oriented handling of renewable and non-renewable energy sources and the transformation of the trading to a continuous trading close to real-time. A major prerequisite to do so is to improve forecasting technology allowing more autonomous reactions on market situations.
