Variable Renewable Energy Grid Integration Studies: A Guidebook for Practitioners

The purpose of this guidebook is to introduce power system policymakers, regulators, operators, and supporting organizations to RE grid integration studies.

Countries around the world are establishing ambitious goals to scale up the contribution of renewable energy (RE) toward meeting national energy demand. Because RE resources such as wind and solar generally increase variability and uncertainty associated with power system operations, reaching high penetrations of these resources on the grid requires an evolution in power system planning and operation. To plan for this evolution, power system stakeholders can undertake a grid integration study. A grid integration study is a comprehensive examination of the challenges and potential solutions associated with integrating significant variable RE generation in the electricity grid.
