This report examines cost reduction and technology improvement trends for a suite of renewable energy generation options, and it illuminates other factors that may influence their deployment through 2025.
This study examines the feasibility of maintaining reliable electric service with the expected level of intermittent renewable resources associated with California's 20% renewable portfolio standard.
This report analyses the nature of variable renewable energy and the resulting challenges associated with integrating variable renewable energy technologies into a power system. It highlights the importance of increased flexibility when integrating high levels of variable renewable energy.
As distributed energy resource technologies proliferate on the grid, resulting changes to the grid will make it more efficient and reliable, and will provide end users with the opportunity to more proactively use energy and reduce the cost of services.
This report articulates nine mechanisms by which the smart grid can reduce energy use and carbon impacts associated with electricity generation and delivery in the United States.
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
This report details findings from a pilot High Voltage Broadband over Power Line (HV-BPL) program, an effort to develop a disruptive technology that can not only replace the pilot wire relaying systems used to protect some high voltage transmission lines but can also provide a secured broadband
This website provides 16 presentations from a workshop held in Beijing, 7-8 December 2010, as well as a workshop summary. Experts shared the methodologies and results of U.S.
This report provides a roadmap for smart grid deployment for policymakers, describing key aspects and benefits of smart grid technologies, identifying key steps to attain smart grid deployment goals, and developing policy pathways for reaching those goals.
