Achievement of a low-emissions energy economy requires that a large share of energy production come from sources with low carbon footprints. Renewable power generation is the best low-footprint source available in the near term. Electrically and economically interdependent power networks must match supply and demand in real time to provide reliable service. Bill will discuss the keys to avoiding high “system costs” that a large share of renewables could impose. These keys include institutional and regulatory changes, smart grids, reformed bulk power markets, electric energy storage, diversified wind locations and other changes that will require much time and effort to implement. Sign up required.
