Drivers and Barriers to Deploy Microgrid in Sweden
Paper in proceeding, 2022

This paper aims to identify drivers and barriers of microgrid deployment in Sweden for gaining insights on the upscaling potential of microgrid adoption in the country. Furthermore, two real-life distribution grids in southern Sweden are used to dimension the energy storage system (ESS) needed to enable island operation of the grids through power balance analysis. The results have also shown the benefit of interconnecting two adjacent distribution grids to form an interconnected microgrid. Through interconnection, the size of ESS can be reduced by around 23% as compared to operating two microgrids separately on their own. The analysis has also shown a potential to further reduce the ESS size if the weather information is considered.
