To research how waste management companies can support load flexibility, recycling plants were analysed on their potential for taking part in the control power market. The results show that the studied plants are generally suitable to supply control power. As contribution to increase the load flexibility potential of the plants the electrification of waste collection vehicles to hybrid or full electric vehicles is examined. Moreover, the goal is to increase the economic feasibility of this kind of vehicle types to make a comprehensive power engine transition of the fleet attractive at an earlier stage.
