A new report from the American Council on Renewable Energy recently released a report entitled “Renewable Energy at Scale in the U.S. and Europe: Lessons Learned and Best Practices.” Authors from the German Embassy, IBM, U.S. Department of Energy, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, and the Energy Future Coalition provide insights on various policies, incentives and methods used in increasing the share of renewable energy in the electric system.

EFC’s Ben Springer offered an assessment of the challenges and opportunities of integrating renewable energy into the high-voltage transmission system in the U.S. and Europe. The piece touches on physical and technical constraints in the transmission system, regulatory constructs governing the grid, and best practices in market structures for renewables.

The report is available for free on ACORE’s website here.
