New York Announces Plans to Procure Approximately 800 MW of Offshore Wind

LCG, July 13, 2018--The Governor of New York yesterday announced that the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) has agreed upon plans for the state's first procurements of offshore wind to support New York's goal of installing 2,400 MW of new offshore wind generation by 2030. The new capacity will be important to achieving New York's goal of satisfying 50 percent of its energy requirements with renewable energy by 2030. The goal is part of the Governor's Clean Energy Standard, which was adopted by the PSC in 2016.

LCG teams up with Scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab to assess electricity policies in a high renewable environment


LCG, May 16, 2018 – With the help of LCG experts and the modeling engine, UPLAN, researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory published a report today examining a high renewable energy environment and existing electricity sector policies, rather than the tradition generation mix that has historically been used to look at policy decisions.

Joachim Seel, Andrew Mills, and Ryan Wiser, researchers in the Electricity Markets and Policy Group at Berkeley Lab, joined forces with experts at LCG Consulting to analyze results from detailed electricity market simulations for the year 2030. These simulation results were applied qualitatively to reexamine policy decisions like nuclear incentives, EV charging infrastructure and energy efficiency portfolios.

Their main objective: Do electric-sector decisions made assuming low variable renewable levels still achieve their intended objectives in a high renewable future? The simulations address generation mix, wholesale and ancillary service prices, and carbon emissions across SPP, NYISO, CAISO, and ERCOT.

The report, Impacts of High Variable Renewable Energy Futures on Wholesale Electricity Prices, and on Electric-Sector Decision Making is available here .
