01/11/2018 More Renewables Mean Less Stable Grids, Integrating growing numbers of renewable power installations and microgrids onto the grid can result in larger-than-expected fluctuations in grid frequency.”

Marques et al., 2018  Energy Policy  Volume 116, May 2018, Pages 257-265   The installed capacity of wind power preserves fossil fuel dependency. … Electricity consumption intensity and its peaks have been satisfied by burning fossil fuels. …

3 May 2018  Renewables Fail To Deliver: When Demand Is High, Generation Capacity Is Low.   Cradden and McDermott, 2018  “Prolonged cold spells were experienced in Ireland in the winters of 2009–10 and 2010–11, and electricity demand was relatively high at these times, whilst wind generation capacity factors were low. Such situations can cause difficulties for an electricity system with a high dependence on wind energy.

Principles for Northern Europe. “This is where the wind profile shifts from exponentially within the forest to logarithmically above the forest, and this change in the wind profile
causes turbulence and unpredictable wind flows. It is worth mentioning that the turbulence and changes in wind speed above the forest canopy vary on the impact from the atmospheric stratification (Brayshaw, et al., 2011).”
