Secondary control could prevent disruption caused by adding new transmission lines
Researchers decipher US electricity generation data from last 15 years
In the words of Rana Adib of REN21, "when it comes to heating, cooling and transport, we are coasting along as if we had all the time in the world"
Innovative solutions to boost renewable energy
Using electric vehicles as mobile power storage could ease large-scale deployment of renewables across energy grid
Outdoor temperatures could fall up to a degree with more efficient cooling systems
Nuclear plants cannot easily and safely be ramped up and down rapidly and regularly. So how can we balance variable outputs from renewables?
As we move away from large power plants, there will be problems with maintaining the stability of the electric grid
Some renewables are variable, so how do we account for the cost of balancing them?
Levelised Cost of Energy figures are widely used but are a poor measure of actual energy costs. Can we do better?
