Are batteries enough to complement wind and solar production? Can we increase renewable generation on islands without compromising the stability of the electricity grid?While renewables are crucial to decarbonise electricity generation, the sun doesn’t always shine and the wind doesn’t always blow when we need our electricity. The demand for electricity is also variable, both on a daily (day vs night) and on a seasonal (winter vs summer) basis, especially on islands that attract tourism. This webinar will introduce the integration of renewables into smart energy systems on islands with a focus on storage and on grids and infrastructure.
