Wind and solar grid integration
Project location: National
Project lead: CanmetENERGY Ottawa
Timeline: 4 years (2019 to 2023)
Program: Renewable Energy
This project convenes Canadian utilities to discuss and evaluate challenges and opportunities associated with very high penetration of variable renewable power in the bulk electricity system. By the end of the project timeline, we will demonstrate various capabilities of variable renewable energy sources to support grid reliability, such as the provision of ancillary services. Additional work tasks included in this phase of the project include evaluating Transmission grid codes across the country, in terms of how non-synchronous forms of generation are referenced.
We are also seeking opportunities to collaborate with external grid integration/smart grid projects, and to work with our colleagues at CanmetENERGY Varennes on complementary research they are leading on smart inverters.
