This report is in response to the U.S. Department of Energy's solicitation for proposals that address the potential challenges and solutions to realizing a scenario of "20 Per Cent Wind Energy by 2030." In order to achieve this scenario, the authors of the report surveyed 33 operators of electric power systems in 18 countries about wind power integration. This report also provides utilities with recommendations and examples of success stories aimed at informing the design of decision support tools, solutions, and strategies for integrating more wind energy into their own power systems.
