We apply a U.S. electric-sector capacity-Expansion and dispatch model to assess possible implications-changes in generation mix, system cost, CO 2 emissions, distribution of renewable energy deployment-of a set of potential greenhouse gas mitigation policy options over a range of technology projections. The model used, ReEDS, provides unique spatial and temporal detail to ensure electric-system constraints of reliable load provision are maintained throughout the system's transformation.
