In this chapter, Ryan Jones discusses transmission, energy storage, and grid integration of renewables. We expect that our energy services are reliable, or that supply matches demand, and that services conform to basic standards for voltage and frequency, called power quality. The three options for future energy options are fossil fuels with carbon capture and sequestration, nuclear, and renewables such as wind and solar. He discusses the drawbacks of renewables, as well as issues including seasonal energy imbalance.
