The paper will consider various techniques that have been used to help renewable generation connect to the grid. The first is the use of STATCOM technology for the supply of voltage and power factor control by supplying fast var's to meet the reactive requirements of the grid code and also to support installations which are connecting to a weak grid. The second part will consider the role that energy storage has to reduce local intermittency and to participate more profitably in the local supply and ancillary service market.
