The rise of solar PV and other renewables presents a whole new world for electricity grid operators; a new report shows how PV is already providing solutions, and how it will be key to meeting Europe’s ambitious energy and environmental goals.
The increasing role played by renewable energy sources, including solar photovoltaics (PV), requires a new perspective on Europe’s power system management. Under all scenarios envisioned, PV will play an important part of Europe’s electricity mix – as much as 25% by 2030. This new report shows how Europe’s electricity system can integrate high levels of solar PV in the coming decades.
The report was conducted after interviewing several network operators, both at transmission and distribution level, so as to identify best practices and build recommendations on the basis of real-world experience. It also includes input from external experts.
