The World Energy Council’s Japanese member committee has released a report taking a new look at the challenges and measures for renewable energy (RE) system integration in Asia. The report finds that most Asian countries are now putting renewable energy at the centre of future energy development plans, and have also started R&D in electricity storage technologies, mainly focusing on batteries, which will be an essential tool in order to mitigate RE’s output intermittency and maintain grid stability and power quality for customers.
Meanwhile, the report finds that some Asian countries have already encountered problems due to RE penetration and have developed measures to mitigate them. It is also expected that most Asian countries will face new challenges due to greater penetration of RE in the near future.
In addition to the analyses, the report provides recommendations and best practices that can be shared and implemented, regardless of current RE penetration level.
