With increased renewable generation, the focus is moving from the quantity of generating capacity to its quality, or more specifically its flexibility. Current efforts to implement demand response provide a capacity resource that compares poorly to a combustion turbine and provides limited flexibility. This paradigm should shift to using highly responsive load to integrate renewable and distributed generation. Copyright © 2012 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
