Study Shows PJM Could Handle 30% Renewables by 2026

This forthcoming study, led by GE Energy, also shows many positive impacts of large amounts of renewables: 

  • lower systemwide production costs
  • lower wholesale energy costs
  • lower average locational marginal prices (LMPs) and lower zonal prices
  • lower emissions of criteria pollutants and greenhouse gases

A nice summary is here, and presentation for the study here.
