“What do scientists mean when they talk of renewable energy penetration?”

 

Often times, scientists will mention a term called “renewable energy penetration” when discussing sustainable systems. Now, the name itself probably comes off as a tad bit confusing, so what exactly do they mean? Well, renewable energy penetration simply means the amount of power in the electric grid that is supplied by renewable sources. This term is not just a simple measure of energy generation but is a phenomenon that energy engineers, planners, and policymakers must focus their active attention on since a grid with a high renewable percentage will have to deal with novel effects such as the duck curve and microgrid integration.
