Renewables rescue stability as the grid loses spin


The high-altitude Atacama Desert of northern Chile is a surprising location for scientific insights: Its dry and dusty likeness to Mars makes it ideal for interplanetary testing, and distant worlds are particularly visible to telescopes through the altiplano’s clear night skies. But it is the area’s record amount of solar radiation that enabled the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s (NREL’s) own breakthrough in the Atacama: a proof that bulk renewable resources can stabilize the power grid.
