Description

Complementarity of Variable Renewable Energy Sources consolidates current developments on the subject, addressing all technical advances, presenting new mapping results, and bringing new insights for the continuation of research and implementation on this fascinating topic. By answering questions such as How can complementarity be used in the operation of large interconnected systems?, What is the real applicability potential of energetic complementarity?, and How will it impact energy generation systems?, this title is useful for all researchers, academic and students investigating the topic of renewable energy complementarity in systems. In just over a decade, the subject of 'energy complementarity' has experienced a growing presence and understanding by researchers and managers of energy resources looking to enhance energy systems. Early research proposed methods to quantify complementarity, the effects of complementarity on performance of hybrid systems, and how to identify and map complementarity between solar energy, wind energy and hydroelectric energy systems.

    A way forward to achieve net-zero carbon

    This decade is witnessing exponential growth in renewable energy market share, requiring broader and easy access to related descriptive materials. The advent of this book aimed to highlight how the variability of renewables can be seen as an opportunity. This book addresses how renewables hybridization or spatial distribution can help maintain power system resilience and reliability at par with the current power structure. The question of how renewables complementarity can enhance grids' resilience value—rather than a zero-carbon bulk power supply— is explored in this book. It is a perfect guide for the energy system engineers, researchers, students, government/semi-government organizations, and decision-makers to understand complementarity and how to integrate this matric into the energy modeling framework to fully capitalize the renewables potential in achieving net-zero carbon goals. I would recommend this book to college/university liberaries and those who are curious to know the renewables complementarity and how it can assist in designing a zero-carbon power system for uninterruptable supply.

    Overall

    Interesting and valuable contribution in this very rapidly developing research area. Some chapters seem to have an overlap with each other but the contributors have looked at the problem from different perspectives so it makes the knowledge more digestible. Overall I highly recommend it if you want to read a very detailed summary on the current state of complementarity research. "Teaching chapter" is a very valuable addition to the book although its form could be bit altered to give the teacher a ready to use material instead of just examples.
