Summary:

Variable Renewable Energy (VRE), i.e., wind and solar photovoltaics (PVs), is being installed in rapidly increasing amounts around the world. Growth in VRE is being spurred by ambitious zero-carbon targets set by countries and individual states across the globe. The European Union approved a carbon neutrality target for 2050 in 2019. Japan’s newly appointed prime minister announced the same target in 2020, and the Chinese government set goals to peak carbon emissions before 2030 and become carbon neutral by 2060.


Spanish layman's summary:

En este artículo, presentamos primero algunos registros recientes de la integración de las energias renovables variables en todo el mundo. ADiscutimos los desafíos operativos observadas en algunas regiones de Europa, Estados Unidos, Australia, China, Japón, Brasil y Chile y las estrategias de mitigación en curso y planificadas para administrar el crecimiento de las renovables.


English layman's summary:

In this article, we first present some recent records of VRE integration around the world. Next, we discuss the operational challenges with the growth of VRE  in some regions in Europe, the United States, Australia, China, Japan, Brazil, and  Chile. Finally, a few ongoing and planned mitigation strategies for managing the growing shares of VRE.
