Costs of Integrating Renewable Energy into the Electric Grid
February 20, 2013, 10:00 - 11:30 MST
Join NREL for a webinar examining the practices and issues associated with assessing the costs of integrating renewable energy into the electric grid. Our panelists will explore the challenges of calculating integration costs and explain how other types of generators also impose costs to the system. They will examine the relative magnitude of costs assessed by utilities and grid operators based on a survey of Western utilities and address the implications of the recent FERC ruling on variable generation.
