Research output: NRELPresentation


This analysis was conducted under the first round of the Solar Energy Innovation Network (SEIN), which is a program led by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The program assembles diverse teams of stakeholders to research solutions to real-world challenges associated with solar energy adoption. This analysis supported the efforts of the Orlando: Renewable and Resilient SEIN team, which consists of the City of Orlando, Orlando Utility Commission, University of Central Florida's Solar Energy Center, and the Greenlink Group. The City of Orlando aims to deploy solar and solar-plus-storage to support energy resiliency, environmental quality, and the continued affordability of the electricity supply. The team's efforts include identifying the total solar potential available city-wide, conducting more detailed analysis for municipal facilities and distribution grid modeling, and gathering insights on municipal-level solar policies and building guidelines to share with other municipalities. This analysis supports the team's work by analyzing the techno-economic potential of solar photovoltaics (PV) and lithium-ion battery energy storage at 14 municipal sites in the City of Orlando.
