Renewable energy penetration is increasing dramatically in the world. Renewable energy power generations have become a strong presence in an electric power system. However, it is a challenge for renewable energy to be stable power sources due in part to natural variability of renewable energy and its uneven distribution. For effective use of renewable energy, a combinational of power resources (e.g., thermal power plants, hydropower systems) and energy storage technologies (e.g., pumped-storage power generation and storage battery system) should be desired. Therefore, we need to understand the amount of renewable resources, causes of variation, and the predictability of power output. Then, observation and forecast information from earth science field should be analyzed and applied to power energy field to achieve easy use of earth science databases.
Recently, observation databases from remote sensing technology and/or forecasts from numerical models have become essential for both renewable energy and electric power system fields. This proposed session needs your presentation from the whole of renewable energy fields (solar power, wind power, geothermal power, tidal power, wave power and biomass power generations). Our goal of this session is to exchange views with various researchers between renewable energy field and earth science field (e.g., usage-trends of earth science datasets for renewable energy field, the subjects in hand, earth science datasets availability, and a request from renewable energy field to earth science field, and so on).
