MASTER CLASS OVERVIEW

 

As states and utilities across the US have moved to increase their commitments to decarbonize and phase out much of their fossil generation, the burden falls to utility planners and commission analysts to determine how to do that in a way that is both cost effective and maintains reliable operations.

However, understanding how storage and renewables interact with existing infrastructure operationally, to analyze the costs and benefits of various procurement approaches, and to combine those analyses in an effective IRP is difficult at best with traditional modeling methods and tools.

This innovative Master Class will provide those responsible for evaluating storage and renewable technologies (and planning for their deployment) with the current state-of-the-art in technologies, as well as the modeling acumen to assess their interactions with existing assets and justify resource plans. This will include not only discussing modeling the operational capabilities and limitations of current short-duration batteries in concert with renewables, but explore the introduction of innovative long duration technologies with up to 150-hour discharge. Most importantly, it will examine how to integrate renewables and storage with existing resources in the production cost models that form the basis for IRP analyses, and operationally into the system.
