This Brattle Group study (https:/www.brattle.com/insights-events/publications/grid-enhancing-technologies-shown-to-double-reg
ional-renewable-energy-capacity-according-to-study-by-brattle-consultants) found that in Kansas and Oklahoma Grid Enhancing Technologies [GETs] could double renewable energy generation on the grid, paying for themselves in just six months.
Rocky Mountain Institute describes Grid Enhancing Technologies (GETs) (https:/rmi.org/ferc-could-slash-inflation-and-double-renewables-grid-upgrades) as
"Dynamic Line Ratings
Adjusting the carrying capacity of transmission lines based on real-time measurement of ambient conditions
Transit analogy: real-time adjusted speed limits
"Advanced Power Flow Controls
Hardware solutions that push power away from lines with capacity constraints and pull power to lines with spare capacity
Transit analogy: railroad switching stations that direct trains to free tracks
Software solutions that automatically route power flows around congested areas
Transit analogy: re-uniting drivers around traffic"
As Pogo said, "We are surrounded by insurmountable opportunities;"
Pogo also said, "We have met the enemy and he is us."
