about

Renewable Energy Integration: Practical Management of Variability, Uncertainty, and Flexibility in Power Grids, Second Edition,offers a distilled examination of the intricacies of integrating renewables into the power grid and electricity markets. It offers informed perspectives from internationally renowned experts on related challenges and solutions based on demonstrated best practices developed by operators around the world. The book's focus on practical implementation of strategies provides real-world context for the theoretical underpinnings and the development of supporting policy frameworks.

The book considers myriad wind, solar, wave, and tidal integration issues, thus ensuring that grid operators with low or high penetration of renewable generation can leverage the best practices achieved by their peers. This new edition includes updated case studies and new chapters on energy storage, electric vehicles, financing renewable energy integration, transmission and distribution system planning, and innovative solutions for PV integration. The book highlights, carefully explains, and illustrates the benefits of advanced technologies and systems for coping with variability, uncertainty, and flexibility.



  • Lays out the key issues around the integration of renewables into power grids and markets, from the intricacies of operational and planning considerations, to supporting regulatory and policy frameworks
  • Illustrates enabling and disruptive technologies to support the management of variability, uncertainty, and flexibility
  • Offers new case studies from the Middle East, Australia, and New Zealand
  • Provides new chapters on energy storage, electric vehicles, economics, financing renewable energy integration, transmission and distribution system planning, and innovative solutions for PV integration
