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. The authors seeks to summarize that body of work for a less technical audience that will need to put in place the policies, technical changes and institutional systems necessary “to make the power system of the future a reality.”
