Electrical grids are rapidly evolving with the unavoidable, yet necessary, addition of variable renewable energy sources. Current grids struggle with the inherent disparity in wind and solar energy – and will continue to face even greater challenges. Innovative and smart new systems are needed to integrate intermittent renewable energy sources (wind and solar) on a mass scale safely.
This article takes a closer look at the UAE and the GCC countries’ regulations and their approach to creating resilient and dynamic grids as well as their investment plans in large-scale storage.
