The International Solar Energy Society, ISES, has launched its latest publication "Dispelling the Myths - Renewables in the Grid ": a set of eight infographics dispelling the most commonly claimed myths about renewable energy integration.
When discussing renewable energy, knowledge is key, especially when confronted with commonly claimed shortcomings about renewables. As COP24 in Poland dominates the headlines this December, where governments and climate advocates discussed ways to mitigate future climate change, it is ISES' objective to strengthen and support the urgent call for a renewable energy-based energy transformation by sharing the knowledge needed to achieve this revolutionary goal.
In addressing this objective, ISES has developed a series of infographics to clarify commonly claimed shortcomings about renewable energy. The first installment in this series addresses renewable energy integration into the grid.
Each of the eight infographics introduces a common myth regarding grid integration, then dispels the myth based on latest research findings and real-world successful experiences of the integration of renewables into existing electrical grids.
Dr. Dave Renné, President of ISES says: “These infographics should serve as valuable tools for stakeholders seeking to inform decision and policy makers, as well as skeptics, about the real and practical value of adding large amounts of renewable energy to the grid. Despite the characteristically variable nature of their output, renewables give us a much cleaner energy source without sacrificing the quality and reliability of our electricity supply.”
With these infographics, ISES has created a tool to be used in ongoing debates - be it with your local decision makers, colleagues, friends or families - on the role of renewables in our electricity supply. Sharing knowledge on the real possibilities of renewable energy will help lead the way to their large-scale incorporation into the grid!
We invite you to utilize and share the infographics in your work and when discussing renewable energy with colleagues, friends and family. Please share them widely with your networks.
