First Review of New Book

The first review of Dr. Sioshansi’s latest book, Variable Generation, Flexible Demand, has appeared on the CA Current website. Here is a quote from it:

It highlights the need for grid operators to predict the amount of fluctuating wind and solar resources and schedule complimentary demand. This represents a major change from the traditional way in which demand was forecast and generation resources were dispatched to meet it. The book provides lessons and examples of integrating rising levels of carbon neutral resources into the grid.

The New Book Comes Early!


We are delighted to announce that Dr. Sioshansi’s new book, Variable Generation, Flexible Demand, will be available early. It is now on pre-order. Here is what you can look forward to.

Traditionally the grid operators predicted demand and dispatched generation to meet it. As we move forward to a future where renewable generation accounts for the bulk of supply on the network, this paradigm is changing to one where the grid operators have to predict variable renewable generation and adjust demand to match it. This is likely to happen in more places as the percentage of renewable generation, especially solar and wind, is challenging the ability of the grid operators to keep supply and demand in balance in real time. This book examines the ways and means of developing flexible demand, which has remained largely unexplored, to play an increasing role.
