Interconnectivity and the Grid: More Power to Clean Energies

As utility companies clamor for solutions to utilize the upside of these currently intermittent sources of energy , more emphasis is needed to develop solutions to effectively absorb solar, wind, and geothermal alternatives to the electrical grid without destabilizing a region’s power supply. Now is as good a time as any to find answers. New legislation – some states are mandating as much as 40 percent of their power supplies come from alternative sources in the next few decades – has made the challenge imperative for grid operators and regulators to store and manage large amounts of energy from solar and wind sources more efficiently and effectively.
