Title: Lessons from Large-Scale Renewable Energy Integration Studies: Preprint

Lessons from Large-Scale Renewable Energy Integration Studies: Preprint In general, large-scale integration studies in Europe and the United States find that high penetrations of renewable generation are technically feasible with operational changes and increased access to transmission. This paper describes other key findings such as the need for fast markets, large balancing areas, system flexibility, and the use of advanced forecasting.
