An Overview of Renewable Energy Desk Activities for Power Grid Operations and Planning

Many countries around the world are setting up clean energy targets to decarbonize the energy sector. On electric grids, meeting these targets involve deploying gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy resources such as solar, wind, and hydropower. In 2022 alone, five countries (European Union, United States, India, United Kingdom, and China) added 275 GW of solar and wind, according to the International Energy Agency1 . As the share of renewable energy increases, grid operation practices need to be modernized.
