Renewable energy sources - in particular, wind, tidal and solar - will play a significant role in the supply side structure of future power systems. Their intermittent nature may be smoothed partly by reserve capacity of the power system, partly by fmding a special place for them in the load demand curve and partly by using secondary storage. Wind and tidal sources are expected to participate in base generation while solar sources are only suited to the intermediate zone of generation curve.
