This study, produced in 2014, describes how increased solar and wind energy sources will impact the grid.
Project Overview: At the request of its stakeholders, PJM Interconnection, LLC. (PJM) initiated this study to perform a comprehensive impact assessment of increased penetrations of wind and solar generation resources on the operation of the PJM grid. The principal objectives include:
• Determine, for the PJM balancing area, the operational, planning, and energy market effects of large-scale integration of wind and solar power as well as mitigation/facilitation measures available to PJM
• Make recommendations for the implementation of such litigation/facilitation measures.
