Report Buyer Predicts Need for New Power Lines to Connect Distant Wind and Solar Farms

Report Buyer, an online business information providing company, has declared the availability of a new report titled ‘Renewable Integration and Balancing Issues’, providing insight on energy storage systems, cost of structures, integration with grid and other considerations related to operation of renewable energy sources.

The report details how the electrical power production from renewable energy sources flourished during the last decade. It narrates how various countries and regions are able to develop their own renewable energy policies allowing a variety of renewable energy technologies to thrive and benefit, while an international consensus on global warming and increased use of renewable energy still remain indefinable. The report indicates that during the year 2008 besides major hydropower generation, wind energy accounted for 121 GW, biomass for 50 to 60 GW, solar power for 14 GW and small hydropower sources accounted for 85 GW.

The report indicates how the remotely located wind turbine and solar energy farms created problems in the grid integration for the system operators. The integration problems are further identified as structural and balancing problems. The report details how the structural problems necessitated changes at the grid level to increase the grid capacity, laying of additional electrical power lines to bring power from remotely located wind and solar farms. It discusses the additional stability measures required and transmission capability added up to adjust with the varying power flows from wind and solar farms.
