Data Validation for Hosting Capacity Analyses: Executive Summary

Adarsh Nagarajan, Yochi Zakai

Research output: NRELTechnical Report


The usefulness of Hosting Capacity Analysis (HCA) is dependent on users' confidence that the results accurately reflect grid conditions. This report provides the findings and recommendations from research, conducted by The National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) and The Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC), into HCA data validation best practices. The goal is to provide utilities, regulators, and stakeholders best practices for HCA data validation procedures so that future HCA deployments avoid uncertainties and potential mistakes from earlier rollouts and provide useful and accurate data from the day they are published.
