Xi Wang Co-authors Report on Curtailment of Renewables

Xi WangCSTPR graduate student Xi Wang and a group of international collaborators recently released a report providing an overview of curtailment trends of wind and solar energy in nine countries. The study was conducted by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) as part of the International Energy Agency Wind Task 25 on Design and Operation of Power Systems with Large Amounts of Wind Power.
