The Utility Variable-Generation Integration Group (UVIG) announced the launch of its new web site variablegen.org. In addition to presenting a new look and feel, the site features an enhanced navigation structure for industry-recognized content on integration, interconnection, and reliable operation of wind and solar generation on utility power systems.
The Utility Variable-Generation Integration Group, previously known as the Utility Wind Integration Group (UWIG), was established in 1989 to provide a forum for the critical analysis of wind and solar technology for utility applications and to serve as a source of credible information on the status of wind and solar technology and deployment. The group’s mission is to accelerate the development and application of good engineering and operational practices supporting the appropriate integration of variable generation for utility applications through the coordinated efforts and actions of its members, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy, its National Renewable Energy Laboratory and utility research organizations. UVIG currently has over 175 members from the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia, including investor-owned, public power and rural electric cooperative utilities; transmission system operators; and associate member corporate, government, and academic organizations.
