Wind power in Ontario: Quantifying the benefits of geographic diversity
Abstract. Integrating wind power into the Ontario electricity system requires managing its variability. Many studies and proponents of wind power claim that positioning wind farms in geographically diverse locations will mitigate variability and smooth wind power’s contribution to electricity generation. Our study analyzes the actual electricity production of wind farms in Ontario with capacities larger than 40 MW for 32 months (March 2006 to December 2008). Seasonal correlations between wind farm outputs are generated and graphed against the distances separating the . . . Complete article »
Review of Wind Power Results in Ontario: May to October 2006
From Energy Probe, “a consumer and environmental research team, active in the fight against nuclear power, and dedicated to resource conservation, economic efficiency, and effective utility regulation.” Energy Probe is part of Energy Probe Research Foundation, one of Canada’s largest independent think tanks, which strives “to eliminate tragedies of the commons.” “The study presents results from a synchronized database of actual wind production and consumer demand. Recognizing that the production experience to date covers a relatively short period of seven . . . Complete article »
