JISEA-funded Analysis Published in Scientific Journals
October 2013 — Two new works funded through JISEA's Innovative Research Analysis Award Program (IRAAP) have been published in scientific journals.
" Renewable energy potential on marginal lands in the United States," authored by a team from NREL and Stanford University, appears in the January 2014 issue of Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews. This study identifies several marginal land categories suitable for renewable energy development, and calculates the technical potential for various technologies on these lands.
" Power systems balancing with high penetration renewables: The potential of demand response in Hawaii," authored by a team from NREL and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, appears in the December 2013 issue of Energy Conversion and Management. This analysis indicates that demand response has the potential to smooth power system operation in Hawaii with high RE penetration, and that production cost savings could arise from improved thermal power plant operations and increased wind production.
Through IRAAP, JISEA funds collaborative, multi-disciplinary research that works toward a more sustainable global energy economy.
