Grid Integration – The Wind Program

The Wind Program functions with electrical grid operators, utilities, regulators, and industry to create new strategies for incorporating increasing amounts of wind power to the grid while maintaining economic and reliable operation of the grid.Utilities have been increasingly deploying wind power to provide portions of power generation. However, many utilities also express concerns regarding wind power’s potential impacts on electric power system operations, because wind’s variability adds uncertainty beyond what exists due to variations in power demand (also called load). These concerns, if not satisfactorily addressed, could limit the growth…
