Changes in the Economic Value of Variable Generation at High Penetration Levels: A Pilot Case Study of California
Thursday, August 4, 2016
Resource Type : Research or Whitepaper
Topic : Valuation, Analysis, BCA    
State : California    
Author : Andrew Mills, Ryan Wiser - Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Adoption Year : 2012
We estimate the long-run economic value of variable renewable generation with increasing penetration using a unique investment and dispatch model that captures long-run investment decisions while also incorporating detailed operational constraints and hourly time resolution over a full year. High time resolution and the incorporation of operational constraints are important for estimating the economic value of variable generation, as is the use of a modeling framework that accommodates new investment decisions. The model is herein applied with

Value of Grid-Connected Photovoltaics in Michigan
Thursday, March 31, 2016
Resource Type : VOS Study or Benefit Cost Analysis
Topic : Valuation, Analysis, BCA    
State : Michigan    
Author : Sean Ong
Adoption Year : 2012
In recent years, Michigan has seen an increase in grid-connected photovoltaics (PV), with 1.9 MW installed in 2010, bringing the total grid-connected PV capacity to 2.6 MW.  As solar technologies become more prominent in Michigan’s electric generation portfolio, it is increasingly important to understand the value it provides to the state’s electric utilities and citizens. This white paper study estimates the value of PV generation in Michigan by comparing hourly solar generation with hourly electricity prices from specific years. This study al
