Large Scale Grid Integration of Renewable Energy Sources – Way Forward
This report was prepared by the Indian government’s Ministry of Power, Central Electricity Authority. It was put together on the basis of discussions and inputs from Gujarat, Rajasthan and Tamil Nadu. It concludes that the variability of renewable sources of power can be addressed through improved forecasting techniques. When the percentage of renewable energy sources becomes significant, special attention needs to be paid to accurately forecast their output. India’s size is useful in balancing the variable output of renewable energy sources located in few states by integrating them into the national grid. It is expected that all the five electrical regions of India would be synchronously connected in 2014.
