Renewable energy sources are vital to the future decarbonization of our energy sector. As these energy sources achieve higher penetration, they have an increasing impact on energy grid functionality and stability. This workshop describes how advanced grid support functions of modern “Smart Inverters”, together with battery energy storage systems create a clear path to a fully sustainable energy grid. What Fronius calls the “24 hours of Sun”.
