The papers in this special section examine the enabling of very high penetration renewable energy integration into future power systems. Renewable energy is regarded as one of the main solutions to achieve power system sustainability. In recent years, renewable energy has been experiencing fast development. In 2016, 24.5% of the total power demand in the world was supplied by renewable energy, where 5.5% was produced by wind power and PV [item 1) in the Appendix]. It is estimated that by the end of 2017 the global wind power and PV capacity had reached about 565 GW and 335 GW respectively. Some power systems have already entered the era of high penetration of intermittent renewable energy ntegration.
