About this book

This book covers various data scientific approaches to analyze the issue of grid integration of renewable energy for which the grid flexibility is the key to cope with its intermittency. It provides readers with the scope to view renewable energy integration as establishing a distributed energy network instead of the traditional centralized energy system. Specifically, quantitative valuation system-wise of the levelized cost of energy, which includes both initial cost and various operational costs, enables readers to optimize energy systems in order to minimize economic cost and environmental impact. It is noted, however, that the high cost of integrating renewable energy on a large scale might slow economic growth considerably. Topics addressed in the book also include statistical comparative study of the relationship between energy and economic growth, a graphical model of determinant factors for foreign direct investment in renewable energy, the coupled oscillator model and unit commitment model to capture intermittency of renewable energy, and the network model of evolving micro-grids. The book explains desired innovation to reduce the integration cost significantly using innovative technologies such as energy storage with hydrogen production and vehicle-to-grid technology. Illustrated by careful analysis of selected examples of renewable integration using different types of grid flexibility, this volume is indispensable to readers who make policy recommendations to establish the distributed energy network integrated with large-scale renewable energy by disentangling the nexus of energy, environment, and economic growth.

Chapter 1. Introduction: Today’s Our System
Abstract
On the Earth, there is an inflow and outflow of energy, such as the intake of sunlight (ultraviolet, visible, and infrared light) and the emission of thermal radiation into space. On the other hand, very little matter enters or leaves the Earth. Although it is not a perfect isolated system because of the energy flow in and out, the Earth can be regarded as an isolated system as a rough approximation. Thermodynamics tells us that, in the equilibrium state of an isolated system, a homogeneous state with no structure that maximizes entropy is realized.

Chapter 3. Fluctuation and Correlation of Renewable Energy
Abstract
We are interested in multi-dimensional data for various practical purposes. However, it is often seen that the multi-dimensional data are hard to understand intuitively due to correlations between some of the dimensions of the data.

Chapter 9. Hydrogen Energy Storage and Nuclear Energy
Abstract
The International Energy Agency (IEA) has proposed the NZE 2050 scenario, which calls for net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Achieving this will require major changes in the energy sector. Renewable energy sources such as solar PV and wind power, which have become increasingly popular in recent years, effectively reduce \(\mathrm {CO}_{2}\) emissions \(\mathrm {CO}_2\) emission. However, other sources must compensate for their output fluctuations.
