Solar energy

Argonne researchers use real-world data to model the effect of more solar on the gridOctober 10, 2014

As we add more electricity from renewable sources that can only make electricity when the sun shines or the wind blows, researchers from Argonne have been modeling the power system to help utilities adjust their operations to make sure they can maintain high levels of electricity reliability.
