Webinar details

Global warming has become the most urgent and complicated problem facing the world today. Increasing demand for use of oil, coal and gas has seen enormous quantities of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere in the form of greenhouse gases which, along with deforestation, have driven the global warming phenomenon. This phenomenon has contributed to unseasonal fluctuations in temperature, resulting in dramatic events such as the freezing cold weather, violent snowstorms, and devastatingly lethal bushfires.

The integration of renewable energy sources into power systems has gained significant attention in recent years due to the growing need for sustainable and clean energy solutions. However, this integration presents several challenges that must be addressed to ensure the reliable and efficient operation of power systems. This presentation will explore the key challenges associated with the integration of renewable energy sources and provides solutions and strategies to overcome them. It intends to cover aspects such as intermittency, grid stability, energy storage, and policy frameworks. By understanding and addressing these challenges, power systems can successfully integrate renewable energy sources and contribute to a more sustainable future.
