Solar eclipse will be a serious threat to the grid in Europe - VIDEO PDF Print E-mail

At next month's solar eclipse can disrupt the functioning of the energy system across Europe. And this is because European countries have switched to using the energy of Sunlight. This warning did many operating companies of electricity.
In energy companies warn that due to the solar eclipse possible serious failures and accidents in electricity networks of European countries. According to energy, the effect of the upcoming March 20, 2015 of natural phenomena may be unprecedented, wrote an authoritative edition Financial Times.

According to the energy companies, in 1999, when there was a similar scale eclipse of the Sun on the share accounted for only 0.1% of the energy which is obtained from the Europe of so-called renewable sources. However, in 15 years the share of consumption of solar energy has increased to 10.5% in the European scale. And in some economies Sunlight has become one of the main sources of energy. In particular, in Germany, the share of this source accounts for more than 25% of energy from renewable sources. It is worth noting that the energy systems of European states are very closely related to each other.

eclipse of the Sun, astronomers predict that on March 20 last about four hours. And energy companies begin preparing in advance for this event in order to protect the power system of the continent. Not everybody is overly pessimistic. Patrick Grayhen, a representative of the German company Agora Energiewende, believes that the natural phenomenon not inflict great harm to the grid, as long ago developed ways to balance work stations, and the time to prepare for an emergency enough.

Expert one thing is clear: solar eclipse will be a kind of test of strength for the European energy sector, as they have to test their devices under unusually sharp changes in solar activity, which will be even more noticeable if the day is clear, and the station will operate at full capacity.

"For 30 minutes of energy from Sunlight is first reduced from 17.5 to 6.2 gigawatts, and then again rise sharply to 24.6 gigawatts," - said Grayhen. According to him, March 20 the European energy sector will have an opportunity for a moment to look into their own future, as this kind of jumps in power grids will be in 15 years not so rare, because solar power plants in Europe is becoming more and more.

"It will be a domino effect," - said a company representative ENTSO-E Claire Camus. According to her, at least turn off power stations during the eclipse, Europe will rely on energy neighbors. In order to produce the same as usual, the amount of electricity required to use the station running on coal, gas and hydro power plants, she said.

According to the company ENTSO-E, about 35 thoUSAnd. Megawatts of solar power, which produces 80 medium power, disappear and then gradually returns to the grid in Europe within two hours of April 20, 2015. First solar eclipse threatens the security of the European electricity grids. Experts agree that the forthcoming natural phenomenon will be an unprecedented challenge for the European electricity and at the same time will help you understand how to relate to ambitious goals of the EU regarding the transition to renewable energy sources and safety of the electricity that affect the daily life of Europeans.
