The World Bank wanted to update the supply options study for Kosovo, originally completed in 2011 and updated in 2014, to account for more recent data related to assumptions. The World Bank wanted to update the assumptions, conduct the required model runs and checks for accuracy, update the options study report to reflect the new results, and support the transfer of the model to World Bank team users. The objective of the study was to determine which new plant scenario would be least-cost for Kosovo.
DHInfrastructure updated assumptions provided by the World Bank and advised on additional assumptions. We modeled the hourly dispatch of Kosovo's existing and planned thermal and renewable generation plants (including imports) for the period 2017 to 2052, with scenarios differing in the type and capacity of the new plant to be built (300 or 450 MW, coal, dual-fuel, fuel oil, or scaled-up renewable energy with storage) in order to determine the least-cost scenario for Kosovo. Modeling included analysis of a wide range of sensitivities and switching values. DHInfrastructure and supported the transfer of the model to the World Bank team.
