ABSTRACT
The article reports on a study from the International Energy Agency (IEA) indicating small additional cost from combining high shares of wind and solar photovoltaic (PV) power systems. It mentions the need for transforming the systems to ensure long-term flexibility despite of challenges raised by variable renewable energy (VRE). It also notes that the modification depends on the stability of the system which does not require investments.
