Course Description

Using energy efficiently allows performing all activities by saving money. Benefits show the economic and environmental advantages that EE measures create. Industries can improve their competitive edge by reducing costs for the efficient use of energy in their production processes at the same time this contributes with the environmental care, therefore the benefit is not only from the costs saved but also due to the value-added from eco-friendly production systems and company reputation generated by social and environmental responsibility´s good practices.

 

Wind turbines and solar panels are likely to play a critical role in achieving a low-carbon power sector that helps address climate change and local pollution, resulting from fossil fuel power generation. Because wind and solar power output are weather-dependent, it is variable in nature and somewhat more uncertain than the output from conventional fossil fuel generators. It is therefore important to consider how to manage high penetrations of solar and wind so as to maintain electric system reliability.

This introductory course, delivered by Leading academics from Cinnova Academy, with technical input and contributions from the National Energy Renewable Lab (Golden, Colorado), will discuss what challenges variable output renewables pose to the achievability of a reliable, stable electricity system, how these challenges can be addressed and at what costs. Its overall objective is to demonstrate that there is already a range of established technologies, policies and operating procedures to achieve a flexible, stable, reliable electricity system with a high penetration of renewables such as wind and solar.

The course uses a variety of country and context-specific examples to demonstrate the concepts. Policy makers, regulators, grid operators and investors in renewable electricity will benefit from a solid understanding of these considerations, thereby helping them drive forward the development of a fit-for-purpose clean power system in their own regional context.
