The Internet of Things has the potential to significantly transform the power sector, which already benefits from early consumer-oriented applications.
With increased emphasis on reducing emissions from the power sector, grid-level energy storage can enable larger penetration of renewable energy into the grid.
In emerging wind energy markets, issues related to grid integration of wind energy are not at the forefront. An ad hoc project specific approach to grid integration is inadequate to support sustainable wind power development.
Accelerating wind development in new wind energy markets will require strong policy enablers in the areas of tariff, wind resource exploitation, grid integration, licensing, and others.
