The microgrid concept is a big step towards solving the controllability problems of distributed resources
Scientists have teamed up to find a way to optimize wind power for use, even when it’s not blowing.
Scientists from the University of Geneva are using the rules of genetics to better understand how to incorporate wind and solar power into the current electrical grid to produce a renewable power system.
o make it more reliable and widely available, scientists have developed a two-prong approach to ensure wind power generation doesn’t die down as a renewable resource.
When the researchers added the hard-to-predict wind turbines as a source of power in the model, it still worked as well.
Enter the energy internet. It’s based on the idea that electricity could be distributed similarly to the actual internet.
