#RENEWABLE #ENERGY | Taiwan spearheads smart grid

Smart grids are expected to enable high penetration levels of renewables whilst maintaining grid stability and reliability. Among other benefits, smart grid technology has the advantage of automation and extensive systems performance information, which can enable self-diagnosis and repair in the event of a failure. Dr. Chen Yen Haw, Deputy Director of the Taiwan Institute of Economic Research, observed: “Smart Grid is the key component required to integrate the value chain between Green Energy and traditional energy”. Emerging smart grid technology is being rolled out in partnership with the state utility the Taiwan Power Company (TPC). As technologies reach maturity they are initially trialed at TPC’s research campus before large-scale installation. Among the existing smart grid demonstration projects are microgrid installations on the Taiwanese islands of Dong-Ji and Tai...
