How Much Wind can New England Integrate? A Synopsis of Recent ISO-NE Studies
ISO-NE’s System Planning group recently examined issues related to the integration of on- and offshore wind. Two studies requested by NESCOE and Anbaric focused on off-shore wind and another by RENEW analyzed a specific portion of the Maine system. Join our panelists for a summary of the results and key findings for the following studies:
· The 2019 NESCOE Economic Study examined transmission system and wholesale market impacts associated with the increasing penetration of 8,000 MW of offshore wind projects, including Vineyard Wind (800 megawatts [MW]) and Revolution Wind (200 MW), and alternative transmission system expansion for specific offshore wind interconnection points.
· The Anbaric Economic Study studies the impacts of offshore wind on energy market prices and air emissions when the system experiences up to 12,000 MW of offshore wind production.
· The RENEW Economic Study focused on the economic impact of relieving a constraint around Bangor that is reducing wind output in northern Maine.
Please join us to learn where the wind will blow? How much might be lost due to overgeneration? What does New England need to do to incorporate this amount of offshore wind while maintaining system reliability and resiliency?
