Chairman introduction: Renewable Energy IntegrationSession
Renewable Energy Integration focuses on ways of incorporating renewable energy, distributed generation, energy storage, thermal technologies and demand response into the electric and gas distribution and transmission systems.
Energy storage and grid stability are among the most important issues supporting greater integration of renewable energy. Battery and other storage systems play a vital part and when deployed in connection with renewable generation by sharing the same infrastructure and at the same time offer flexibility to the grid operator.
Green gas also offers storage capability and this session explores how biomethane is being integrated into the gas grid.
Other integration aspects include conversion to heat and cooling, demand side response, rooftop solar and incorporating plug-in electric vehicles operation into the grid.
The following question will be asked to the audience and the results of this poll will be discussed afterward. You can also vote!
Who do you believe should shoulder most responsibility for renewable integration?
