Renewables plus Storage Capacities

Session

Energy Efficiency Engineering

Description

The purpose of this paper is to address the inherent intermittent nature of renewable energy, which is often overlooked from a practical viewpoint. The intermittency of renewables interrupts normal conventional grid flow, forcing the grid operator to adjust the real time operating procedures. Specifically, solar power –which generates renewable energy during the daytime- may force conventional power producers to reduce or turn off capacities to accommodate the energy produced: also referred to as priority dispatching. One practical method of overcoming this limitation, as well as ensuring that the grid is not thrown off balance is by combining a storage solution with a renewable resources. Such storage capacities, used to fill the shortfall intermittency or for emergencies, can be crucial in providing reliable power supply. Storage solutions combined with solar or wind power projects should be projected, to provide a steady supply of power regardless of weather conditions.
