In the energy sector, the new millennium is bringing unprecedented challenges related to global warming, which are representing a major driver for change in energy system planning, design and operation. In this context, and on the basis of the state-of-the-art literature in the field, the aim of this chapter is to illustrate the fundamental aspects relevant to energy system operation in the presence of CO2 emission-related issues and constraints, with an indicative time horizon from 1 day to 1 week. Within this time frame, the role of CO2 emissions in optimal operational strategies to exploit the energy system equipment is opportunely identified, illustrated and modelled. In particular, this..
