Webinar Abstract: Renewable energy, namely wind and solar, is currently the fastest-growing class of resource in MISO. There are many questions that will need to be explored and answered in order to understand and mitigate the impact these resources will have on reliability and performance of the grid. MISO’s Renewable Integration Impact Assessment (RIIA), provides an in-depth, systematic analysis of how the system behaves as more renewable energy resources enter MISO’s overall generator fleet.
