Distributed and intermittent energy sources—wind, solar, energy storage—are changing the way electricity is generated. Despite its many benefits, renewable energy also introduces load volatility to a power system attuned to steady, predictable generation. The recent emergence of dedicated off-grid or smaller scale generation assets in remote areas add another layer of complexity. GMI’s researchers are developing tools and technologies that address these impediments to the widespread deployment of flexible generation.
