Over the last decade, the development of renewable energy sources (RES) has taken place at a pace that outstrips any other sources of energy. RES has reached a certain level of maturity and greater financial attractiveness than traditional technologies. However, progress in the implementation of RES is still not the same across countries and sectors of the economy; the opposite is felt both for regulatory, financial and technological reasons, and in view of the integration of new sources into existing energy. The problem of streamlining the implementation of RES policies, especially variable renewable energies (VREs), and the relationship between the degree of autonomy and the integration of new capacities to the overall grid at the national, regional, and local levels requires careful attention.
