Renewable Proposals Made at October Board
Proposal 1 Identify analyses needed to inform policy debates Coordinate WECC-wide info/analysis and coordinate with other analyses (e.g., WestConnect/NREL solar and wind integration study) Example analyses: Major growth in renewable generation National RPS and/or robust Western RECs trading system Technology breakthroughs (PVs, CCS) Electrification of the transportation sector Climate change impacts on load and hydro generation Other Who: WECC Board
Proposal 2 Assessment of transmission needs: Continue to build analysis capacity (historical schedules/flows, modeling of capital and operating costs for transmission solutions) Evaluate robustness of transmission solutions beyond 10 years (scenario analysis beyond 10 years) Who: TEPPC
Proposal 3 Forum for LSE and PUC resource planners Establish in conjunction with others (CREPC, WGA, CEOs) a forum to promote information sharing among LSE resource planners and PUCs/energy agencies Forum would share information on topics such as methods for evaluating carbon risk in resource decisions, low carbon technology assumptions Forum would respond to requests (e.g., LSE long- term renewable generation plans) Who: TEPPC / JGC renewable task force?
Proposal 4 Evaluate the long-term adequate sizing of new transmission to location-constrained low carbon resources Who: PC / TEPPC
Proposal 5 Undertake timely analysis of the reliability implications of innovations to reduce cost of integrating renewables, such as: ACE Diversity Initiative Regulation sharing Virtual control area consolidation Who: RPIC / OC / MIC
Proposal 6 Consider additional tests for approving new Balancing Authorities such as: Will the creation of a new BA lower the cost of integrating more renewables? Will a new BA improve reliability? Who: WECC Board
