Dispatchable Hybrid Renewable Solutions – September 12, 2019

Thursday, September 12th, 12-1 PM at the Niskayuna Reformed Church room, 3041 Troy Schenectady Rd, Niskayuna, NY 12309.  RSVP Supriya Tawde, at by Wednesday, September 11th

Renewable hybrids paired with right sized energy mix, storage and control platforms will overcome intermittency and shift generation profile in sync with grid schedules. IEEE Schenectady Section would like to invite you to a talk which promises to focus on the potential of the Hybrid Renewable Solutions to provide clean energy.

TOPIC:  Dispatchable Hybrid Renewable Solutions

ABSTRACT: A hybrid solution can combine wind, solar with an additional resource of generation or storage. Typical solar output is maximum between 11am and 3pm, while wind output is peaks in late evening and early morning. Peak demand of power is reached in the evening hours around 6-9pm, which is tough to be catered by either wind or solar resources in isolation. With right size of resource mix and storage combined “hybrid” system can provide 24×7 clean energy in response to varying levels of demand throughout the day. The overall output of the hybrid system can thus be matched against a required load on an hourly basis. In this way, it can provide both baseload and flexible power in tune to varying load and energy prices. Inclusion of digital platforms like forecast and control enable overall solution optimization meeting cost parity with industry trends.
