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.
PG&E conducts periodic solicitations to sell Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) credits. PG&E generates the credits available for sale in solicitations by dispensing low-carbon electricity for use as a transportation fuel. Information on the Low Carbon Fuel Standard program is available on the California's Air Resource's Board (CARB) LCFS website.
Oct 01, 2018 · Though still dwarfed in the generating fleet by more traditional generation options such as coal, gas, and nuclear power, intermittent resources have risen dramatically, first aided by supportive policies, technology advances, and consumer preferences but now driven more by economics. 1. 1. “Nearly half of utility-scale capacity installed in
Both long-distance transmission and distributed energy resources can enable lower-carbon electricity. The transmission network can enable connection to high-quality renewables and other lower-carbon resources far from load centers; distributed energy resources can provide local low-carbon power and efficiency.
generation these clean resources are meant to replace, and what role the wholesale market should play in enabling new “smart” resources at the distribution/retail level. The question also includes both market structure (which entities perform which functions) and market design (what are the trading, bidding, and price-setting
Dec 20, 2021 · Low carbon generation. High and Volatile: Trends from our Q421 Green Power Forecast. At the end of January we released our latest Green Power Forecast, projecting renewables generators revenues over a five-year horizon whilst also providing Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) pricing and benchmarking updates, and a survey to gauge the latest renewables market trends.
Zero-carbon energy stations (ZCESs) have a promising prospect in reducing carbon emission, which also results in great impacts on the planning scheme of low-carbon distribution system (DS). In this context, this paper carries out the low-carbon DS planning considering the flexible support of ZCES.
Jan 08, 2021 · In the CAISO wholesale electricity market, day-ahead prices during the first six months of 2020 were 34% lower than during the same period in 2019. These low wholesale prices reflected near record-low natural gas fuel costs and reduced electricity demand resulting from pandemic-related stay-at-home orders.
Mar 18, 2021 · Natural gas and renewable energy sources account for an increasing share of U.S. electricity generation, while coal-fired electricity generation has declined. In 1990, coal-fired power plants accounted for about 42% of total U.S. utility-scale electricity generating capacity and about 52% of total electricity generation.
1. Changes in utility-scale generation sources that reduce overall carbon emissions, including the retirement of existing carbon-emitting facilities and the deployment of new generation resources; 2. The increased deployment of customer-level distributed energy resources (DER); 3.
Jan 17, 2022 · Gildan commits to continuing its fight against climate change by paving the way towards a low carbon future, with a goal of reducing its scope 1 and 2 CO 2 emissions by 30% by 2030 1, aligned with
role in the sale and distribution of this renewable resource, giving its customers access to 22,000 MW of flexible, reliable, carbon-free hydropower across 15,000 miles of transmission lines.

Jan 07, 2022 · Unleashing renewable fuels now to bridge the gap to net zero. January 7, 2022 By Guest Post. Chris Ellis, executive vice president of distributed infrastructure at PowerSecure, explores why renewable fuels such as renewable diesel should be considered by businesses looking to ensure reliable, safe and low-carbon backup power generation.
Jan 15, 2020 · Due to their low marginal operating costs, times when variable renewables are generating the most often correspond with relatively low (and sometimes negative) prices in electricity wholesale markets. This means that shifting electricity demand to times of low CO 2 intensity can potentially save consumers money on their electricity bills. Yet
Jul 05, 2016 · Another goal of the industry restructuring in Mexico is to improve the competitiveness of low-carbon generation and encourage the development of new capacity. Mexico's goal is for clean energy sources to provide 35% of the nation's electricity generation mix by 2024, 40% by 2035, and 50% by 2050.
