ABSTRACT
The article reports that a European grid computing project worth �4.7m could solve the approaching problem of how to co-ordinate the electricity output of a proliferation of new wind farms and solar power stations. Peter Hobson, project leader of Brunei University's portion of the GridCC project, said that dynamically coordinating alternative energy source output on the national grid would prove difficult in the future. According to him, grid computing, which harnesses the processing power of many interconnected computers at different locations may be the answer. The European Union is backing the three-year project with �2.8m.
