PrefaceSome of the most available, cheapest, and powerful renewable energy sources for green electric energy conversion are highly uneven in nature.Solar photovoltaic plants convert renewable energy during day-time, but fail to do so when solar radiation is low or absent during bad weather conditions or night-time. Wind energy manifests even higher variability than solar photovoltaics, as well as posing greater difficulties in correct forecasting of wind turbine output.In both cases, the energy converted from such renewable sources is immediately injected in the grid with the risk of making the electric distribution grid unstable. A national energy system with a large penetration of intermittent renewable energy sources can therefore be extremely difficult, if not impossible…
