Renewable Energy Grid Integration

Preparing transmission and distribution systems for higher shares of sustainable energy

The variable nature of renewable energy sources like solar PV or wind calls for transformational changes in the technical planning and operation of power systems. The need for change often goes hand in hand with energy security related concerns and challenges, which need to be addressed early on in renewable energy deployment.

GET.transform supports power system planners and operators to reliably integrate variable renewable energy into their grids. GET.transform supports analytical work to establish a sound base for updating planning and operational procedures and provides capacity building to trigger a mind-set change and boost confidence in the operation of renewable energy dominated power systems.

GET.transform works with electric utilities and their power system network planning and operation departments to analyse support needs, and uses variable renewable energy (vRE) Integration Roadmaps to identify short-, mid- and long-term measures for updating planning and operating procedures.

Together with the project partners, GET.transform suggests adequate support measures that may range from developing grid codes and compliance procedures to analysing flexibility and stability requirements or analysing new vRE forecasting frameworks.
