This report focuses on wind and solar energy and the three principal issues associated with integrating wind and solar resources with the grid: (1) variability of generation addressed by forecasting, energy storage and transmission, (2) the remote location of wind and solar resources addressed by transmission and (3) how the incomplete business case undervalues key resources such as storage and transmission. According to the authors, the study is unique in addressing the technology and business case issues for renewable energy in a common framework.
