This paper presents a broad range of new Waste-to Energy technologies which hold the potential for increasing the flexibility of national energy systems and the quantity of renewable energy produced in the systems. The technologies make it possible to store energy and increase the amount of renewable energy in the transport sector by producing bio-fuels. Moreover, they can increase the energy efficiency of waste used for energy production when compared to incineration. Two factors are particularly important to take into account when modelling the flexibility of Waste-to-Energy plants: the regulating possibilities of the plants and the possibility to store input and output fuels.
