Research and Markets: Case of Seasonal Electricity Oversupply Caused by Wind and its Handling in the US and Canada

Research and Markets (
has announced the addition of the “Case
of Seasonal Electricity Oversupply Caused by Wind and its Handling in
the US and Canada” report to their offering.

Overproduction from intermittent sources such as wind is causing an
electricity oversupply into the power grid system in regions where wind
installed capacity contributes significantly to the electricity
generation mix. Federal and state policies support renewable power, with
the highest priority for both access to the grid and avoiding
curtailment. However, some cases arise in practical operations when
renewable power needs to be curtailed, to avoid a grid collapse. The
amount of wind curtailment will likely witness a rise in the near
future, as more wind generation capacity is added. Curtailed
wind-generated electricity may receive compensation, and this varies by
jurisdiction and the exact reason for curtailment.
– The report covers the case of electricity oversupply due to
intermittent source like wind and its handling in the US and Canada.
