The weather enterprise is expected to play a major role in the ongoing expansion of renewable energy sources in New York State
The weather enterprise is expected to play a major role in the ongoing expansion of renewable energy sources in New York State as well as nationally and globally. Not only does weather drive the siting and performance of solar and wind energy systems, it also dynamically impacts the grid’s electricity demand and delivery capability. This codependency can be complex and will only grow as renewable energy expands geographically and reaches much higher grid penetrations. This conference is intended to discuss this situation and address such topics as:
What is the appropriate role of the weather enterprise in support of the expansion of renewable energy, and who are the key stakeholders?
What innovations and collaborations are necessary to ensure a sustainable transition to a renewables-dominant future?
What are the most important concerns and challenges among respective stakeholders as they perform their roles in this transition?
What are the particular technical challenges with respect to different renewable energy technologies (solar, land-based wind, offshore wind), energy storage, and grid integration?
