During this one-hour webcast on integrating renewable energy resources into the transmission grid, our presenters discussed issues relating to the integration of variable generating resources, such as:
- Power system reliability, including energy imbalance practices, scheduling, and forecasting
- Transmission expansion and upgrades, including cost planning and recovery
- Balancing Authority coordination
Our presenters also addressed FERC's Notice of Inquiry on the integration of variable energy resources, in which FERC sought comments (due March 29) on the extent to which barriers may exist that impede the reliable and efficient integration of variable energy resources into the electric grid and whether reforms are needed to eliminate those barriers.
