Modeling Renewable Energy Resources in Integrated Resource Planning

    Research output: NRELSubcontract Report


    This subcontract report examines the capabilities of utility planning models to address key issues in choosing between renewable resources and other options. Including renewable energy resources in integrated resource planning requires that utility planning models properly consider the relevant attributes of various renewable resources in addition to the conventional supply-side and demand-sideoptions. The study recommends how utilities should use the current capabilities of some models and suggests the direction of future work.
