The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy supported the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in its response to this request through the Technical Assistance Project. Discussion with the MPCA identified the following asthe highest-priority questions: What is the effect of (i) size of Renewable Energy Reserve (RER) and (ii) duration of allocation award on (a) NOx emissions in Minnesota and (b) retail electricity prices?
