Product Description

Review

'Very timely.' Sherkin Comment 'Integrating intermittent renewable energy sources like wind into electricity systems must be one of the most misunderstood issues in energy policy. This edited volume brings together a unique series of authoritative articles on the topic. There should be no excuse for misunderstanding from now on.' Jim Skea, Research Director, UK Energy Research Centre 'The future design and operation of electric power systems with large injections of renewable energy generation is the subject of much debate, and some misunderstanding. This timely book, from a number of authors with expertise in the area, makes an important contribution to our understanding of this topic.' Nick Jenkins, Professor of Energy Systems, University of Manchester 'We know the future will be different from the past. This book predicts how large proportions of renewable energy can be incorporated into electricity grids, without harm from the natural variability of these supplies. The chapter authors have different approaches and vision, yet the overall message is positive. Not only can we move to dominant use of renewable electricity, but we can do so utilizing many technological and efficiency improvements, with consumers benefiting from clean electricity at acceptable cost.' Professor John Twidell, General Editor, Wind Engineering 'Anyone interested in renewable electricity will find this book an important reference. It answers many of the questions so often raised in public debates' Sherkin Comment

Format: Paperback
This book proves in simple language how variable renewable energy can be included into the UK energy mix. The authors do not pretend that this comes without difficulty but show that the obstacles can be surmounted through innovative uses of energy.
