Navigating the Energy System Transition – Episode 6
Episode 6 of our podcast ‘Navigating the Energy System Transition’ is here!
In it this episode we speak to Mike Ryan who is the UK Commercial Director for Habitat Energy.
Listen in for some really interesting insights on the challenges of running a power system with high renewables penetration and low penetration of synchronous generation. We hear about how less synchronous generation means that features of traditional power systems which we have taken for granted, such as system inertia and reactive power provision, will need to be procured through market mechanisms, as traditional generators (which provided these services) are pushed off the grid. Then, we discuss how smart solutions can help to facilitate participation in such market mechanisms.
