Renewable Energy Grid Integration


Renewable Realities

Heavy incentives for small-scale distributed generation are floating around parts of Canada—and are growing globally. With large-scale generation becoming harder to build and having longer lead times, even utilities are looking favorably on small-scale distributed generation, such as residential...

Distributed Energy Resources - Small Scale Power

Distributed energy resources (DERs) can benefit the power system and individual homes and businesses. DERs can increase the resiliency and reliability of the power grid, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce the overall power cost, and provide power at the point of use. Several types of DERs can...

Integrating Plug-In Electric Vehicles

Preparing the distribution grid to embrace PEVs BY ARINDAM MAITRA & JASON TAYLOR, Electric Power Research Institute As customer adoption of plug-in electric vehicles (PEV) continues to grow so does the potential for adverse consequences to distribution system operations and assets. These...

Energy Storage for Grid Security and Modernization

Opportunities for sustained innovation in the energy storage value chain

BY ADAM TUCK, National Research Council of Canada

Canada is in the enviable position of being relatively rich in natural resources and having one of the cleanest, least expensive, and most reliable electricity grids in the world. However, a decrease in infrastructure investments in the 1990s along with an increase in the integration of variable generation such as renewables, and an overall growth in demand...
