The process of Evolving the renewable generation technologies has many challenges, such as realize reduction in the capital costs and improving energy efficiencies of the different types of renewable energy systems, such as wind, solar PV, solar thermal, and tidal. Significant evolution is desirable in large-scale energy storage technologies. For consistent integration of renewable resources in a grid, the challenges of high penetration levels will have to be addressed in power system planning and operation, and in grid connection. The aspirants of power and energy engineering careers need to be educated so that they can foresee and evolve new approaches and technologies to maintain reliability and economy of grids intact. The challenges of integrating high penetrations of renewable energy technologies into the grid are seldom taken up as they need interdisciplinary innovations in areas as power systems analysis, communications, power electronics, economics, operations research, and industrial organization. In this paper some of the challenges in Integrating Renewable Technologies are discussed.
