ABSTRACT
The articles discusses how utilities can achieve flexibility in integrating renewable energy sources into the power generation mix. The steps include evaluating how they manage multiple plants, interconnecting these plants, and gathering and managing data. The benefits of running plants as a fleet are explained, including being able to handle a more complex infrastructure and being able to manage energy supply better. The benefits of data management, including optimized dispatching and coordinated storage, are also explained.
