Exploring the 'merit order effect'
The new literature review, prepared for EWEA by energy consultants Pöyry, shows that adding wind energy into the power mix has a significant influence on the resulting price of electricity - the so-called merit order effect (MOE) - whilst at the same time reducing CO2 emissions. The literature review brings together, for the first time, the findings of case-studies in Germany, Denmark and Belgium.
