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.
