This presentation explores the potential impacts of variable renewable energy on coal and natural gas generation in the Northwest-Central region of the United States. It is based on analysis with EPRI’s U.S. Regional Economy, Greenhouse Gas, and Energy model.
To effectively evaluate the role of wind and solar generation in a low-carbon energy system, a model must capture the economic effects of their hourly and spatial variability. This paper proposes a “representative hours” modeling method that involves strategically selecting particular hours during a year with maximum and minimum values for wind and solar generation […]
