About The Course

Renewable generation investment is setting new records every year across the world. On days with conducive weather, some markets are entirely supplied by renewable generation. But what does this mean for the viability of conventional generation, grid stability, and electricity market operations?


  • What does a high renewable share do to grid stability?
  • Does a high renewable share mean that spot power markets become less efficient?
  • How do you ensure supply during periods of low renewable generation?
  • Which innovative solutions can help increase renewables generation safely and economically?


Learn from international markets that lead the way in the renewables buildout, and discuss innovative solutions to the challenges that arise from the renewable energy revolution.
