Overview of Variable Renewable Energy Regulatory Issues. A Clean Energy Regulators Initiative Report

Authors are: Mackay Miller and Sadie Cox

This report focuses on key regulatory issues associated with the deployment of variable renewable energy (VRE) sources, especially wind and solar power. Drawing upon research and experiences from various international contexts, the report identifies key issues and ideas that have emerged as VRE deployment has grown and presents a framework for understanding regulatory issues within the larger context of power system evolution. Finally, in order to help regulators anticipate issues that may arise in the future, the report aims to provide a forward look at regulatory lessons learned in cases of high penetrations of VRE.
