EPRI publishes white paper - Capacity and Energy in The Integrated Grid
EPRI today published a white paper, “Capacity and Energy in The Integrated Grid,” which examines:
- The critical importance of both capacity and energy to a reliable power system;
- The significant effects of renewable generation and more efficient loads on power system operation;
- Changes in wholesale markets and retail rate structures, including emerging methods of valuing capacity; and
- The crucial contribution of research and development to make necessary improvements in reliability of capacity from emerging resources, especially distributed resources.
