PJM Interconnection released the initial results of its energy transition study. The study identifies the impact renewable energy has on market design, transmission planning, and grid reliability. The multiyear study is one of multiple being undertaken by PJM.
Five focus areas were identified using the PJM strategic pillars of decarbonization efforts, future grid planning, and innovation. The five areas include: calculating capacity contribution, improving flexibility, incentivizing thermal generators, developing economies of scale, and ensuring reliability.
