Renewable energy is one of the fastest growing sources of electrical energy, but there are many challenges to harnessing these sources and integrating them into the grid seamlessly. Renewable energy sources have a common trait of not being depletable and can be naturally replenished. These sources include solar, wind, water, geothermal, biomass, ocean waves and currents.
Electric power companies are beginning to adopt these new technologies to serve an increasingly sophisticated customer base who in turn are beginning to demand choices in power sources such as solar, wind and other renewable sources of energy. Some of the challenges include permits, right of way, environmental assessments, locations and seamless integration into the electric grid.
