DOE Webinars October 6 and 7: Successful Strategies for Renewable Integration
Posted by Sarah Sunderlin - On October 06, 2011 (EST)
Preliminary results are now available for a study funded by the U.S. Department of Energy that explores the challenges of integrating large amounts of renewable energy such as wind power into electrical grids.
DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy selected Alstom Grid, an energy generation and transmission firm, to conduct the first renewable energy grid integration report of its kind. A team of investigators gathered on-the-ground insights from 33 grid operators in 18 countries over one year to identify challenges associated with managing large increases in variable renewable energy generation, such as wind and solar power. Their work also examined best practices established during the integration of more than 194 gigawatts of wind power that already has been brought online worldwide.
Alstom will hold three webinars on the preliminary results of the study Thursday, October 6 at 1:00 p.m. EDT and Friday, October 7 at 11:00 a.m. EDT and again at 3:00 p.m. EDT.
The webinars are free of charge, but you must register in advance to obtain the link and password for logging on via the Internet and the phone number to connect to the audio.
The webinars will provide an overview of the study's key findings and best practices for integrating wind and other variable energy resources into the grid. A moderated question and answer session will follow the overview.
