Webinar: Scenario analysis of high variable renewable penetrations in ERCOT

Register to watch this presentation on demand

As the costs for wind, solar, and battery storage technologies continue to decline, futures in which variable renewable energy (VRE) resources reach percentages as high as 50% of demand are increasingly plausible. In this presentation ABB Advisors present an analysis of bounds-stretching, what-if scenarios involving high-VRE penetrations of wind and solar capacity in ERCOT.

This investigation examines:

  • Changes to diurnal, seasonal, and annual peak and off-peak marginal clearing prices, including the incidence of negative- or zero-priced hours.
  • Pure arbitrage battery storage builds - in what scenarios and at what installation costs are they economic?
  • Wind and solar unit profitability over time.

Duration: 1 hour

We look forward to your participation.
