Mark O’Malley, is the Professor of Electrical Engineering at University College Dublin (UCD), founding Director of the Electricity Research Centre and Director of the UCD Energy Institute, a multidisciplinary, multi institutional, industry supported research activity. He is a Member of the Royal Irish Academy and a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers. Mark is recognized as a world authority on Energy Systems Integration and in particular Grid Integration of Renewable Energy. He has active research collaborations in Europe, the United States (US) and China, is Director and co-founder of the International Institute for Energy Systems Integration, and coordinator of the European Energy Research Alliance Joint Programme in Energy Systems Integration.
Short Abstract: The integration of variable renewable energy (wind and solar photovoltaic) into energy systems, in particular electricity grids, comes with several challenges. These challenges are technical, economic and regulatory in nature and arise from the variable and somewhat unpredictable nature of the resource, the power electronic technology favored to connect it to electricity grids, the geographical location and near zero marginal cost etc. In the past decade there has been substantial research and deployment of solutions to address these challenges globally. The seminar will give a brief overview of some of this research and will concentrate on the experience in Ireland in particular with an eye to how lessons learnt can be used in China and other countries. Many solutions being developed in China are also very worthy of adaptation elsewhere and this issue will be explored in some detail.
