The 2016 Renewable Energy Grid Integration Data Book identifies the status, key trends, challenges, and solutions of renewable energy grid integration in a highly visual format. This data book provides an overview of selected key grid integration metrics that represent complex interactions among generation characteristics, market rules, and environmental and safety factors, which may vary by geography, season, and time of day; and presents metrics that either indicate how much variable renewable energy (VRE) is currently being integrated onto the grid, or measure factors that may increase or decrease the challenges associated with integrating VRE generation onto the grid.
