Variable types of renewable energy – such as wind and solar – can have outputs that vary over the course of the day or season and can be difficult to predict due to changing weather. Integrating variable generation into the electric grid requires additional flexibility to deal with sudden changes in electricity production. This webinar will explore renewable energy integration issues including the predictability of wind and solar; grid impacts of renewables; managing variability; as well as costs of integrating variable renewable energy generation. Panelists will include Lori Bird and Debbie Lew from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Joe Gardner from the MISO (Midwest Independent Transmission System Operator).
