Learn how utility-scale solar, distributed energy & other renewables are impacting pricing, demand & transmission in the ERCOT power market
Thursday, April 27 at 11:30 PT / 12:30 MT / 1:30 CT / 2:30 ET
Join Locus Energy and Genscape’s ERCOT team for an analysis on the future of solar generation in ERCOT. Although only approximately 1.0 GW of solar generation is currently installed in ERCOT, capacity is expected to reach 2.0 GW by 2018 with capacity estimates ranging from 14.0 GW to 28.0 GW by 2031. With wind generation volatility already a primary determinant in system pricing and congestion magnitude in ERCOT, what should market participants expect from another renewable revolution over the next year and beyond?
This webinar will feature a look at the current impact of solar generation in ERCOT and provide an in-depth analysis on the impacts and implications of future capacity growth, overall pricing impacts, and long-term congestion patterns. The webinar will be followed by a live Q&A session to address any additional questions.
