Integrating Large Quantities of Variable Energy Requires Shift on How System is Planned, Operated
ATLANTAIntegrating large quantities of variable energy resources into the North American bulk-power system requires significant changes to electricity system planning and operations to ensure continued reliability. The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), in collaboration with the California Independent System Operator Corporation (ISO), prepared this assessment to highlight the ISO’s efforts toward effectively planning for and operating a transforming grid, as California expects to connect more than 11,000 MW of variable generation resources to their grid in the next eight years.
