Video Big, Fast, and Flexible: Grid Operations for Efficient Variable Renewable Integration
A growing body of research and operational experience highlights the value of large balancing areas and fast system operations to cost-effectively integrating high penetrations of wind and solar on the grid. This webinar provides an overview of the "big and fast" concept for efficient integration of variable renewables to the grid. Following a brief introduction to the basics of power system operations and power system flexibility, the webinar presents various methods and examples of pathways for moving towards larger balancing areas and faster dispatch under different institutional contexts.

Video chemical/x-pdb Power Purchase Agreements for Grid-Aware Renewable Energy Procurement
Power purchase agreements (PPAs) are a key mechanism that utilities use to procure variable renewable energy from independent power producers. his webinar focuses on PPA provisions that can enable wind and solar technologies to enhance grid stability and contribute to power system flexibility. Discussed are key considerations, including ancillary services, advanced telemetry, and automatic generation control. The discussion is followed with a presentation by Xcel Energy, a vertically integrated electricity utility in the United States and the largest wind buyer in the country, to discuss Xcel Energy’s Model PPA for wind power systems.
