A recent article by my partners Marc Wood and Jennifer Martin explores the transmission challenges faced by wind and other intermittent energy resources and then explains how transmission obstacles can be reduced by the effective use of dynamic scheduling, physical storage and exchange (shaping), or some combination of the two.  The article urges FERC to initiate technical workshops to explore the potential of dynamic scheduling and storage & exchange as tools for improving the capability of existing transmission systems. 

The article "Relocating the wind: New strategies for moving wind generation from high-wind areas to high-load areas" appeared in the May/June 2008 issue of North American Clean Energy.
