Renewable Generation

The importance of long-term planning in short-term power operations

Author: ABB Advisors

The ABB Advisor team has written a whitepaper discussing the rapid growth of renewable generation and the significance of long-term planning.

It starts like this:
Rapid penetration of renewables is dramatically changing the energy landscape in the United States. Decreases in production costs, federal tax incentives, state renewable portfolio standards, and the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan are some of the main drivers for rapid renewable development. To support these policies, additional transmission capacity will need to be built to transmit energy from remote areas where the renewable generators are located to major load centers.
