How will the energy crunch impact the transition to renewables?

How will the energy crunch impact the transition to renewables?

Record-high natural gas prices are fueling an energy crunch ahead of winter in the Northern Hemisphere, leading to power shortages in parts of the world.
Energy Storage takes on the Variability Conundrum

Energy Storage takes on the Variability Conundrum

The Holy Grail, the final piece in the renewable energy jigsaw, an unnecessary luxury - energy storage has been described as all of these in relation to large-scale renewables' penetration.
IQwind and Guascor Announce Partnership

IQwind and Guascor Announce Partnership

IQwind and Guascor announced that they will partner to commercialize and bring to market the IQGear, a variable gearbox for the wind industry. The IQwind variable gear can be both retrofitted into existing turbines and utilized as a standard component in newly-manufactured turbines.

How Advanced Pumped-Storage Technologies Contribute to the System

Pumped-storage technologies are ideally suited to support integration of variable renewables.
Integrating Variable Renewables as Germany Expands Its Grid

Integrating Variable Renewables as Germany Expands Its Grid

Until some years ago, the electricity in German grids flowed in only one direction – from a large-scale power station to transformer stations and from there to nearby consumers.
De-risking Wind: Hedging Against Variability

De-risking Wind: Hedging Against Variability

As wind power's share of electricity generation has increased, so have the financial consequences of risks associated with its inherently high variability - risks which don't just affect wind power producers but reverberate vertically through the value chain and horizontally to affect a range of electricity market players. Large utilities can manage risk with a combination of all three basic risk management strategies: limiting exposure to specific energy sources, diversifying, and engaging in extensive trading activities to hedge several types of risks across their operations.
Michigan Utilities Upgrade Pumped Storage Plant ahead of Renewable Push

Michigan Utilities Upgrade Pumped Storage Plant ahead of Renewable Push

The Ludington Pumped Storage Plant along Lake Michigan could play a bigger role on the grid as utilities use more variable renewables.
Hedging Against Wind Variability: A Risky Business?

Hedging Against Wind Variability: A Risky Business?

Securing financing in the wind power industry has always been tied to the viability of wind resource at a given location. Developers collect data on site and over varying lengths of time. If the numbers look good, a project moves ahead to find the financing.
Converting to Variable Speed at a Pumped-Storage Plant

Converting to Variable Speed at a Pumped-Storage Plant

By Jean Marc Henry, Frederic Maurer, Jean-Louis Drommi, and Thierry Sautereau Replacing a traditional pump-turbine unit with a variable speed unit at an existing pumped-storage plant can increase capacity, provide better energy storage and offer faster grid support.
