RENEWABLE ENERGY UPDATE: Energy Curtailment and the Grid

With the global uptake in solar panel installations, electricity is being generated at an ever increasing rate. Sometimes it generates too much electricity for the demand, meaning that it goes unused and ultimately wasted. This is where energy curtailment comes in; deliberately reducing the output of electricity generation so as to not waste power. 

Dr. Matt spoke with Jack Gembitsky about what energy curtailment is and why it is important, using the country Cyprus as an example.


The Renewable Energy Update is a regular segment on 2SER, where Dr Matt Wright checks in on the developments happening in the space of renewable energy. Listen to past episodes here.
