Integrating Renewable Energy into China’s Electrical Grid
The Energy Foundation's China Sustainable Energy Program (CSEP) addresses the challenges to adding wind generation to China's coal-powered grid
Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) may be most recognized for its Green-e programs, but it works to promote renewable energy in many more ways. Since 1999, CRS has been involved with the Energy Foundation’s China Sustainable Energy Program (CSEP), which aims to build capacity within China to expand energy efficiency and renewable energy policy and link Chinese and international experts in these areas.
CRS currently oversees the work of a team of such experts focusing on technical barriers to widespread renewable energy development in China, including barriers to implementation of the national renewable energy law (CRS provided some input to its development), provincial renewable energy planning, data collection on wind performance, and integration of large amounts of renewables onto the electric grid.
