Frontiers in Energy Research

Are Wind and Sun the Same? – Cost-effective Renewable Policies for Intermittent Energy Sources

28 March 2017 | Seminar

Frontiers in Energy Research is a series of lectures given by PhD students of their energy-related research work. Anyone can attend. No registration is required.

The two most widely used new renewable energy sources, wind and solar energy, differ greatly in the available electricity generation over the day. Does this have consequences for their interaction with existing conventional production capacities and should policy-makers take this into account when designing renewable support policies?
