Achieving Very High Solar PV Penetration - Webinar

In June 2016, Energy Policy published "Achieving very high PV penetration – The need for an effective electricity remuneration framework and a central role for grid operators" co-authored by Dr. Richard Perez, Karl Rábago, Mike Trahan, Lyle Rawlings, and several others. The article outlines the vision for a future grid that supports very large amounts of solar energy and is attached to this e-mail. On July 22nd, NESEMC held a webinar featuring Dr. Richard Perez reviewing the article and his most recent work. A recording of the webinar can be viewed here: NESEMC Webinar - Achieving Very High PV Penetration.

SEBANE Stakeholder Forum

NESEMC co-hosted a stakeholder forum on defining solar's value with NESEMC member Solar Energy Business Assocation of New England (SEBANE). Dr. Richard Perez and Karl Rábago gave presentations on the value of solar. Their presentations can be downloaded at the following links:
