In order to promote communication and knowledge-sharing on RE grid integration between US and China experts, the Energy Foundation's China Sustainable Energy Program (CSEP) has organized workshops on a yearly basis since 2009.
On Dec 5, 2011, CSEP prepared and held a workshop entitled “U.S.-China Renewable Energy Grid Integration Workshop” in Beijing. This workshop gathered seven highly respected international experts from the US and Europe and more than fifty participants from the related Chinese research institutes, universities, local grid companies, wind developers and wind energy equipment manufacturers. Two Chinese national experts and three international experts delivered presentations to introduce the latest research findings and progress on integration issues in China, US and Ireland; and in-depth discussions were held among the participants.
As requested by the many domestic participants and permitted by the authors, CSEP posted the five international presentations (in both English and Chinese) on our website for the benefit of the larger RE community.
