It would be expected that the penetration of renewable electricity sources (RES), such as wind power, solar photovoltaic (PV), bioenergy, geothermal, and hydropower would substitute fossil fuel sources. In the meantime, one expects to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and energy dependence. Usually, the benefits of RES have been taken for granted, but have the RES really...
