Make plans to join us this spring in Tucson!
The 2024 Spring Technical Workshop will be held at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort in Tucson, Arizona. The workshop will include a focus on a number of key areas, including Resource Adequacy, GFM, IBR, Flexibility, Transmission, EVs, among others.
This report models the impacts that increasing distributed generation deployments may have on transmission flows and transmission investments. This study looked at the Western Interconnection to explore how increasing distributed generation deployments may impact zonal transmission flows and the need for transmission investment. It also investigated potential synergies between transmission and resource expansion. Three scenarios representing different long-term capacity expansion decisions were modeled: a centralized scenario held distributed generation at current levels while selecting utility-scale generation, a hybrid scenario held distributed generation at double current levels while selecting utility-scale generation, and a distributed scenario simulated distributed generation resources.
