APPrO

ADMS to the rescue?
Renew Grid
Renewable energy is clean and it helps lessen our dependence on finite fossil fuels. According to the International Energy Agency's recently released five-year outlook, wind power generation will increase by 19 per cent and solar generation is likely to jump a whopping 79 per cent in 2013. That's great news except for the significant engineering challenges of actually integrating large amounts of renewables and distributing their power consistently and reliably.
