We’ve spent the past decade reducing our dependence on carbon-intensive power generation, and as a result, our current fuel mix is more than 50 percent carbon free. Coal-fired generation makes up less than 5 percent of our portfolio, compared with the national average of 24 percent. More than half of our power comes from emissions-free
The Role of Firm Low-Carbon Electricity Resources in Deep Decarbonization of Power Generation Nestor A. Sepulveda,1,2,4,* Jesse D. Jenkins,2 Fernando J. de Sisternes,3 and Richard K. Lester1,* SUMMARY We investigate the role of ﬁrm low-carbon resources in decarbonizing power generation in combination with variable renewable resources, battery
May 24, 2021 · Access to wholesale electricity markets and carbon-pricing systems can also make DER deployment more attractive, and DERs may generate more savings in states with higher electricity prices. Figure 4 illustrates states’ relative attractiveness for DER based on these factors.
Renewable and low carbon development over 50 megawatts capacity are currently considered by the Secretary of State for Energy under the Planning Act 2008, and the local planning authority is a
that hasten the transition towards a low-carbon system, power system planners and regulators are preparing to integrate higher levels of variable renewable generation into the grid. Updating the regulations that govern generator interconnections and operations is crucial to ensure system

CALGARY, AB, Nov. 29, 2021 /CNW/ - Capital Power Corporation (TSX: CPX) and Enbridge Inc. (TSX: ENB) (NYSE: ENB) are pleased to announce a memorandum of understanding to collaborate on carbon capture and storage (CCS) solutions in the Wabamun area west of Edmonton, Alberta, near
Feb 24, 2022 · In addition, if consumers have a high preference for low-carbon products, the manufacturer’s risk-aversion coefficient will lead to a lower selling price than in the centralized decision-making situation, and the profit of the supply chain system will also be further reduced.
generation. During the weekend of 23–24 May, renewable generation in the UK amounted to 73 per cent of the total while, not coincidentally, carbon intensity reached the lowest level recorded, at 46g/kWh – well below the target for 2030 and a reduction of over 90 per cent compared with the 1990 baseline.
a grid dominated by very low or zero marginal production cost resources. These concerns are unfounded. A market structure with a central spot market and active de-centralized forward procurement between wholesale buyers and sellers (including exchange-based trading) will lead to sufficient investment to achieve
Nov 08, 2021 · Figure 4: Low carbon steel plants planned next to existing capacity. For policymakers, a key question will be whether to preserve existing structures by implementing measures to keep energy access/prices at incumbent locations competitive, or to embrace a new economic geography of decarbonised energy.
Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) could yet prove a useful interim technology to extend the life of fossil plants while greatly decreasing their carbon emissions. There is also significant interest in green hydrogen not only for power generation and energy storage, but also for heating, transport, and industrial use.
energy. It also examines considerations needed to ensure that wholesale market designs are inclusive of emerging technologies, such as demand response, distributed generation, and distributed storage. The report concludes with a review of potential areas for future research on wholesale power markets.
Dec 09, 2020 · Thus, if flexible low-carbon generation is needed, competitive alternatives are lacking and affordable fossil resources are available, CCUS may become an option. Depending on national circumstances, with sufficiently high carbon prices, CCUS could be a possible complement in certain low-carbon power mixes.
Resource Adequacy and Wholesale Market Structure for a Future Low-Carbon Power System in California ,” July 10, 2018). That paper reflected her thinking at that time about possible revisions in California’s wholesale market structure that might
