File ECMAScript program Integrating Variable Renewable Energy Into the Grid: Key Issues
To foster sustainable, low-emission development, many countries are establishing ambitious renewable energy targets for their electricity supply. Because solar and wind tend to be more variable and uncertain than conventional sources, meeting these targets will involve changes to power system planning and operations. Grid integration is the practice of developing efficient ways to deliver variable renewable energy (VRE) to the grid. Good integration methods maximize the cost effectiveness of incorporating VRE into the power system while maintaining or increasing system stability and reliability.

An electricity capacity expansion model (CEM) is a tool or suite of tools used in long-term planning studies for the power sector. CEMs are used to identify the least-cost mix of power system resources, taking into consideration new policies, technologies, demand projections, and other factors. CEM analysis can be an important tool in developing power sector master plans or integrated resource plans. Low-cost clean energy, storage, and demandside management technologies, along with low-cost computing have improved the quality and complexity of CEM analysis. This fact sheet summarizes eight key advancements in the CEM process: Increased temporal resolution Increased geographic resolution Representing RE resource variability Energy storage technologies Demand response, electric vehicle, and distributed energy resource representation Climate change impacts Technologies for deep decarbonization Linkages across energy sectors

Battery storage is a technology that enables power system operators and utilities to store energy for later use. A battery energy storage system (BESS) is an electrochemical device that charges (or collects energy) from the grid or a power plant and then discharges that energy at a later time to provide electricity or other grid services when needed. Several battery chemistries are available or under investigation for grid-scale applications, including lithium-ion, lead-acid, redox flow, and molten salt (including sodium-based chemistries). Battery chemistries differ in key technical characteristics, and each battery has unique advantages and disadvantages.

Energy Storage
Energy storage refers to technologies capable of storing electricity generated at one time for later use. These technologies can store energy in a variety of forms including as electrical, mechanical, electrochemical or thermal energy. Storage is an important resource that can provide system flexibility and better align the supply of variable renewable energy with demand by shifting the timing of energy supply and demand.
