Brochure: The IECRE – en, fr

IECRE is a Conformity Assessment System based on International Standards prepared by the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) for equipment and services used in renewable energy (RE) applications. The system aims to facilitate the international trade of equipment and services in the marine, solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind energy sectors, while maintaining the required level of safety. Each of these sectors will be able to operate IECRE Schemes that cover products, services and personnel, to provide testing, inspection and certification.

IEC White Paper: Grid integration of large-capacity Renewable Energy sources and use of large-capacity Electrical Energy Storage – en, zh, ko

The proportion of renewable energies is likely to increase in all major electricity markets. Their large scale incorporation into existing electricity grids will be complex, and their successful integration will likely depend on large-capacity electrical energy storage.

This White Paper’s primary goal is to provide a global view on the current state and future directions for grid integration of large-capacity renewable energy sources and the application of large-capacity energy storage for that purpose. It identifies challenges for grid operators and producers of electricity, and provides insights into current and potential methods for addressing these difficulties. The White Paper aims to support grid integration efforts around the world by providing guidance to the electric utility industry, policy makers and the IEC standardization and conformity assessment community.

This White Paper was prepared by the IEC Market Strategy Board (MSB) in cooperation with the Renewable and Sustainable Energy Institute (RASEI) at the University of Colorado at Boulder (CU-Boulder) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), and State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC).

IEC White Paper: Electrical Energy Storage – en, ko

The need for electrical energy storage (EES) will increase significantly over the coming years. With the growing penetration of wind and solar, surplus energy could be captured to help reduce generation costs and increase energy supply.

EES will play an important role in maintaining a continuous and flexible power supply, while balancing the grid, integrating remote and distributed energy generation and meeting varying demands. This White Paper identifies the challenges and outlines available technologies. It includes recommendations on research, regulation and standardization.

This White Paper was prepared by the IEC Market Strategy Board (MSB) electrical energy storage project team in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institut für Solare Energiesysteme ISE and other leading experts.
