30 July 2015

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.
