Not-for-profit research firm The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) has collaborated with a Delhi distribution company BSES Rajdhani Power Limited (BRPL) to investigate technical challenges and solutions for renewable energy grid integration.
The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC) are collaborating on efforts towards the energy transition, including work on integrating high quantities of wind and solar power, interconnections and smart grids.
After new Secretary of Energy Rick Perry sent a memo to his chief of staff authoring a 60-day review of the grid to investigate how certain federal subsidies boost one form of energy at the expense of certain base load energies such as nuclear and coal, many industry observers believed him to be attacking renewable energy, but the SEIA claims this is not the case.
In a manual directly aimed at policy makers, the International Energy Agency (IEA) has sought to debunk various myths about integrating wind and solar to the grid, while also providing solutions to bona fide problems that can arise.
A database of projects involving integration of renewable energy into the grid has been launched by Energy Networks Australia (ENA) and the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) to help collaboration between the renewables industry and grid operators in Australia.
The EU’s lack of regulatory definition for energy storage is among major factors holding back the potential of the technology in the continent, particularly for integrating renewables, SolarPower Europe has argued in a new report.
