The Utility Variable-Generation Integration Group (UVIG), previously known as the Utility Wind Integration Group (UWIG), was established in 1989 to provide a forum for the critical analysis of wind for utility applications. Initially focused on wind power, UWIG expanded its focus to include solar power and distributed generation and become known as the Utility Variable-Generation Integration Group in 2011. Today, UVIG is the leading source of global expertise for wind and solar operations and power system integration.
UVIG provides unique access to credible information and applied research to facilitate renewable energy decisions. The group’s objectives are to provide forums for the critical analysis of wind and solar technology for utility applications.
