Incorporating Renewable Energy in Electricity Grids

Ajay Gambhir, ImperialX

Learn how to manage high shares of variable renewable electricity sources to achieve cost-effective and reliable electricity supplies

Wind turbines and solar panels are likely to play a critical role in achieving a low-carbon power sector that helps address climate change and local pollution, resulting from fossil fuel power generation. Because wind and solar power output is weather-dependent, it is variable in nature and somewhat more uncertain than output from conventional fossil fuel generators. It is therefore important to consider how to manage high penetrations of solar and wind so as to maintain electricity system reliability.

This introductory course, delivered by Ieading academics from Imperial College London, with technical input and contributions from the National Energy Renewable Lab (Golden, Colorado), will discuss what challenges variable output renewables pose to the achievability of a reliable, stable electricity system, how these challenges can be addressed and at what costs. Its overall objective is to demonstrate that there is already a range of established technologies, policies and operating procedures to achieve a flexible, stable, reliable electricity system with a high penetration of renewables such as wind and solar.

The course uses a variety of country and context-specific examples to demonstrate the concepts. Policy makers, regulators, grid operators and investors in renewable electricity will benefit from a solid understanding of these considerations, thereby helping them drive forward the development of a fit-for-purpose clean power system in their own regional context.

What will you learn

  • Explain how electricity systems have traditionally operated with baseload and load-following conventional generators
  • Introduce and explain the basic operational characteristics of the main types of electricity generation technologies, including fossil fuel, nuclear and renewables
  • Describe how electricity system operations change when there are increasing penetrations of variable renewables
  • Discuss the technologies, measures and operating practices at our disposal to cost-effectively incorporate and manage high penetrations of variable renewables
  • Consider how the operation of electricity systems may change in the future, with changes in electricity demand patterns and the emergence of new technologies
  • Understand how different countries are managing the integration of variable renewables into their electricity systems.
