Energy Systems Integration: Data Call -- Become a Data Partner

Kelsey Horowitz, Bryan Palmintier

Research output: NRELFact Sheet


This project aims to advance the understanding of costs associated with integrating PV onto the electric power distribution system while maintaining reliable grid operations. We have developed a bottom-up framework for calculating these costs as a function of PV penetration levels on specific feeders. This framework will used to inform and improve utility planning decisions, increase the transparency and speed associated with the interconnection process, and provide policymakers with more information on the total cost of energy from PV.
