The Rise of Renewables: Integration Challenges and Opportunities
Thursday, May 29 | 3 pm ET/ 2 pm CT/ 1 pm MT/ Noon PT


As states reach higher levels of renewable energy, challenges can arise because of larger amounts of wind and solar energy on the electric grid. Although power systems have been designed to incorporate the variable and uncertain nature of energy demand, renewable energy can add to this variability. This webinar will explore the variety of solutions available to reduce these impacts and how states can cost-effectively integrate renewables into the power system.
