The shift to a low carbon economy is gaining more momentum globally.
To date, one of the lower hanging fruit within this transition has been the decarbonization of the electricity sector. This has been made possible by a rapid decline in the cost of variable renewable energy (i.e. solar PV and wind energy) which is now the cheapest form of new build electricity generation in a number of states globally. However, although material, the electricity sector represents only one of a number of pieces in the decarbonization puzzle. Further, the rapidly increasing proportion of solar and wind in energy systems around the globe is also bringing with it a new set of electricity network reliability and stability challenges that need to be overcome.
