Germany, IEA to co-host summit on system integration of renewables

Germany, IEA to co-host summit on system integration of renewables

The IEA forecasts that by 2023, 33 countries will have up to 20% variable renewables in their power systems, up from 12 countries in 2017. These rising shares of wind and solar PV increase the need for power system flexibility to manage variability and peaks in demand, Caspian Energy News (www.caspianenergy.net) reports with reference to the press release of International Energy Agency (IEA).

This issue of system integration of renewables is “of utmost relevance for our current energy policies,” said Germany’s Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy, Peter Altmaier during a visit to IEA headquarters last week. “We would be happy to feed in our experience and expertise from the German point of view and co-host a high-level conference together with IEA.”

“I am thrilled for the IEA to be partnering with Germany in this summit,” said IEA Executive Director Dr Fatih Birol, “the IEA has unparalleled experience in the field of system integration of renewables.”
