Topic(s): Renewables, Solar energy
Variable generation (VG) technologies such as solar, wind, and hydro increase the level of variability and uncertainty in power grid operations; characteristics that are inherent of electric power systems. In addition to the unpredictable nature of demand, power plants and transmission lines can unexpectedly drop out of service. This fact sheet will review some of the market design options that aid in integrating VG such as solar.
