Renewable Energy Futures Study - Volume One 0 KB Website Renewable Energy Futures Study - Volume 1 of 4. Exploration of High-Penetration Renewable Electricity Futures. The Renewable Electricity Futures Study (RE Futures) provides an analysis of the grid integration opportunities, challenges, and implications of high levels of renewable electricity generation for the U.S. electric system. The study is not a market or policy assessment. Rather, RE Futures examines renewable energy resources and many technical issues related to the operability of the U.S. electricity grid, and provides initial answers to important questions about the integration of high penetrations of renewable electricity technologies from a national perspective.
