Renewables are cleaning the grid. They're also messing it up
Show Notes

Solar, wind, and battery projects are displacing fossil fuel assets in an urgent push to address the threats of climate change.

But the race to decarbonize has created a new problem: In the absence of clear reliability standards, inverter-based resources are misbehaving and messing up the grid, despite repeated warnings.

Episode 67 of the Factor This! podcast features Ryan Quint, who oversees engineering and security integration for the North American Electric Reliability Corporation, which manages the bulk power system.

Quint shares why the sprint to deploy clean energy assets is leaving the grid vulnerable to reliability failures, and why the U.S. can't slow-walk a fix.
