Renewable energy generation technology is advancing rapidly and, along with battery electric, pumped hydro, compressed fluid, and thermal storage systems, may be capable of supplying grid services previously out of reach. Other means of storing surplus generation include production of hydrogen or other molecules that can then be sold, used in industrial processes, or converted back into energy. However, integrating multiple energy generation sources and storage technologies with the existing energy distribution infrastructure requires consideration of multiple sets of dynamics. This special topic collects the cutting-edge research on integrating multiple renewable energy generation and storage technologies into hybrid systems that support grid dynamics and ensure the most efficient use of resources.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Wind and solar energy
- Smart hybrid energy generation systems
- Combined dynamics of generation and storage
- Hybrid renewable energy systems, grid integration, and grid services
- Novel energy storage technologies
- Clean hydrogen generation
- Electric-thermal coupled systems
