Integrating Renewable Energy into the Grid

Utilities and system operators are searching for cost-effective and reliable solutions. I think energy storage - batteries in particular - are at price points now where they represent a cost effective solution.

IEEE 802.16s Standard and Its Use for Distributed Energy Resources

The standard is now being leveraged to support applications at the grid edge including communication with distributed energy resources (DER) including solar, wind and local storage. DER applications are becoming increasingly important in supplying electricity.

Installing solar to combat national security risks in the power grid

Allison Mills for Phys.org: Distributed microgrid tech can secure the electrical grids at military bases to reduce the impact of cyberattacks, physical attacks from terrorists and natural disasters.

California demand for wind power energizes transmission firms

Nichola Groom for Reuters:  A firm controlled by Philip Anschutz, the billionaire entertainment and pro sports magnate, will soon build the largest wind farm in the United States to serve utilities in California, where officials have set ambitious green power goals. The $5 billion project, however, will be constructed 700 miles away in Wyoming, a state better known for coal mines and oil fields. The vast distance between the two states provides a different Anschutz-owned firm with another big opportunity: a $3 billion project building transmission lines to deliver the power - one of a dozen similar power-line projects by other companies across the West. (Map: How wind power will get from Wyoming to California click here) In all, about 5,700 miles of transmission lines are in development with the goal of delivering renewable energy to California from other states, according to the Western Interstate Energy Board.   Cont'd...
