As renewable energy gains importance in our pursuit of sustainability, there are several challenges that need to be addressed to accelerate its adoption and maximise its effectiveness. Some of these challenges include intermittency and reliability. Renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar, are intermittent as they do not produce power consistently. Ensuring a stable and reliable energy supply is a significant challenge that can be addressed through energy storage solutions, grid improvements, and demand-side management.
The integration of renewable energy sources into existing grids can be both complex and expensive. Simultaneously, modernising and upgrading grid infrastructure to accommodate distributed energy generation is essential.
Additionally, large-scale renewable energy projects, such as solar and wind farms, often require significant land use. Balancing the need for renewable energy with environmental conservation and land use concerns remains an ongoing challenge.
Developing resilient supply chains is crucial, and from a technological innovation perspective, continuous research and development are required to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of renewable energy technologies in order to make them more accessible and cost-effective.
