Achieving Ultra-High Penetration Renewables at Least Cost: Optimized Technological Portfolios and Global Implications

World trends and technological advances suggest that we can’t argue that the future of energy is green. The cost of renewable energy is still higher than of traditional forms, although it has dropped significantly. There are still obstacles to wider use, for example, the inconstancy of energy production, which raises the need for more storage capacity. So, what optimized technological portfolios are there for achieving ultra-high penetration renewables at least cost?
