This synthesis report summarizes the discussion points on various sub-topics addressed in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Energy Symposium on Managing Large-Scale Penetration of Intermittent Renewable Energy.
This training course describes how relying on energy from variable renewable energy sources will require a transformation in the way power systems are planned and operated.
Rapidly declining costs of wind and solar energy technologies, increasing concerns about the environmental and climate change impacts of fossil fuels, and sustained investment in renewable energy projects all point to a not-so-distant future in which renewable energy plays a pivotal role in the
Based on analysis of Jamaica's investment environment, this roadmap suggests regulatory and institutional changes that will be necessary to attract new investments in clean energy solutions.
This report explores the options for international auction designs in the EU and provides recommendations on how the design of both national and international auctions should be considered in the drafting of the new RES Directive. Two basic options for international auctions are analysed.
As penetration of wind and solar continues to grow, system operators will face challenges posed by increased levels of variable resources.
Cost-benefit analyses for distributed generation photovoltaic (DGPV) can provide substantive insights into understanding the potential flows of value among stakeholders that grid-connected DGPV programs might induce.
The International Energy Agency's (IEA) Africa Energy Outlook—a Special Report in the 2014 World Energy Outlook series—offers a comprehensive analytical study of energy in Africa, specifically in sub-Saharan Africa, the epicenter of the global challenge to overcome energy poverty.
This report outlines steps for overcoming the challenges in creating power systems with the flexibility needed to maintain system security and reliability while relying primarily on variable energy resources. The work is largely a synthesis of the many reports and studies on this subject.
