Intermittent renewable energy sources, including solar and wind power, typically remain more expensive than conventional power sources…

The ongoing transformation of the European energy system comes along with new challenges, notably increasing amounts of power generation from intermittent sources like wind and solar.
Spain is living with a high penetration of intermittent renewable power from wind and solar PV. Other EU electricity markets will soon have to do the same, if they are not already doing so. This Comment summarizes a number of the challenges facing Spain as a result of this form of de-carbonization, and also considers the implications for the EU
Converting methane to an alternative fuel using energy from the sun could reduce carbon-dioxide emissions…
The main objective of this EC’s study is to quantify the overall limits of energy system – and thus supply – stability under the likely conditions of significantly increased future shares of generation from intermittent sources.
This NBER working paper develops an empirical approach to estimate the equilibrium value of renewable electricity technologies, and applies it to evaluate solar energy mandates in southeastern Arizona
