Renewable Integration - Solar & Wind

2015/2016 has been an interesting year for renewable energy generation but with all this additional capacity comes the increasing need for integration with the grid.

  • What are the key differences in performance and controls?
  • Where are the main integration challenges?
  • How can grid scale renewables contribute to grid-stability?

Travelling around the globe we bring you insights from large scale solar and wind generation projects with a focus on how the efforts to integrate these with their local grids.

Large Scale Solar Integration - Case Study

Broadcast Date: Wed 21 Sep 13:00 UTC


What are the key differences in performance and controls? Where are the main solar integration challenges? What are required systems and controls necessary to reliably support grid stability?

As solar generation edges towards grid scale impact there is an increased requirement for appropriate systems and controls necessary to reliably support grid stability.

What are the key differences in performance and controls? Where are the main integration challenges? How can these combine to deliver grid-stability? In this session our experts will provide an overview of key themes including;

  • Solar power monitoring and prediction systems
  • Modelling for system integration studies
  • Technologies to facilitate integration
  • Power balancing methods and solutions

Attendees will gain a sense of what the key enabler will be for large scale solar deployments considering the often large number of individual inverters at the grid connection interface.

Frameworks and technologies for Solar & Wind integration

Broadcast Date: Fri 07 Oct 13:00 UTC


In this panel discussion our experts will focus on the frameworks and technologies required for successful large scale renewables integration with the grid.

To get the most out of renewables all indications point to a need for additional automation and voltage regulations at the distribution and consumption levels. Also a distributed approach to conventional generation will be needed along with storage to match the fluctuating levels of renewable power generation.

But how do you bring it all together? What technologies and solutions are set to aid and set you on your way? In this panel discussion our experts will focus on the frameworks and technologies to enable success in renewables integration. Some key discussion points will include:

  • Microgrids as the ideal test bed for renewable integration
  • Distributed vs centralised - a pros and cons analysis
  • Storage at the core - smoothing the curve with resilience
  • VPPs, aggregators and interconnection - digitising the equation

Very soon every region will have a significant amount of renewable energy fueled generation capacity. To be able to do so, conventional generation will need to become more flexible, investment will be required to integrate remote amount of generation into the grid and stabilize system operations.
