Planet Philadelphia Today: Electric Grid & Climate Change Print E-mail

 

  Picture

 

We have big challenges ahead from climate change. One of the biggest is how to provide electricity when needed with less pollution and harmful green house gasses. How will the grid accommodate renewable energy and energy sources with less greenhouse gas emissions? What is the role of energy storage in moderating fluctuating sources of  energy? Will having more micro-grids add to   stability or will they be disruptive?
