Studies of renewable energy grid integration have found that curtailment levels may grow as the penetration of wind and solar energy generation increases. This paper reviews international experience with curtailment of wind and solar energy on bulk power systems in recent years, with a focus on eleven countries in Europe, North America, and Asia. It examines levels of curtailment, the causes of curtailment, curtailment methods and use of market-based dispatch, as well as operational, institutional, and other changes that are being made to reduce renewable energy curtailment.||Funding Details:||European Commission - European Regional Development Fund||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Journal:||Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews||Volume:||65||Start page:||577||End page:||586||Keywords:||Wind; Solar; Curtailment; Transmission congestion||DOI:||10.1016/j.rser.2016.06.082||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
