Abstract

The power available from wind, waves, tides and the sun varies in ways that may not match variations in electricity demand. This book examines the significance of the variability of renewable electricity supplies and presents technical and operational solutions to the problem of reconciling the differing patterns of supply and demand. Its chapters are authored by leading experts in the field who aim to explain and quantify the impacts of variability, and in doing so, dispel many of the myths and misunderstandings surrounding the topic
