Grid Modeling for the SunShot Vision Study

Research output: NRELTechnical Report


This document describes the use of production cost modeling in the SunShot Vision study, including methods used to create the SunShot Vision scenarios, their implementation in the Gridview model, and assumptions regarding transmission system and operation of each generator type. It also describes challenges and limitations of modeling solar generation technologies in production cost models, andsuggests methods for improving their representation in current models.
