High Renewable Energy Penetration: New Solutions Center Research Synthesizes Lessons on Effective Policy, Regulation, Planning, and Practice

12 April 2012

In Abu Dhabi, Paris, Davos, and New Delhi, the Clean Energy Solutions Center recently presented preliminary results of a high renewable energy penetration analysis that we developed in partnership with several international organizations and governments. The study focuses on best practices and case study comparisons from Australia, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Spain and the United States. The resulting report and its companion summary for policymakers synthesizes lessons on effective policies, regulations, planning, and practices for achieving and managing significant renewable energy penetration into large-scale electricity grid systems.
