AEMO 2017 Gas Statement of Opportunities study

AEMO 2017 Gas Statement of Opportunities study

Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) has released its 2017 Gas Statement of Opportunities (GSOO) study intended to assess the adequacy of gas infrastructure, reserves and resources to meet demand in eastern and south-eastern Australia up to 2036.

The 2017 GSOO highlights the increasing interdependencies of gas and electricity for reliable supply of energy, and the importance of planning across the entire energy supply chain to ensure energy security.

KEY FINDINGS from this study include:
  1. Declining gas production may result in supply shortfalls
  2. Maintaining system security is becoming more challenging
  3. Increasing electricity and gas prices may threaten commercial and industrial customers

MISO and PJM Release Joint CPP Planning Study Using PLEXOS

MISO and PJM Release Joint CPP Planning Study Using PLEXOS

Midcontinent Independent System Operator and PJM Interconnection have recently completed a joint study using PLEXOS of the implementation of the Clean Power Plan (CPP) in their combined footprint. The CPP has created a need for many electricity industry companies to undertake detailed emissions modeling as part of their long-term planning practices. PLEXOS provides this capability along with numerous other capabilities that establish its unique qualifications for this type of analysis. The study required the ability to model interregional economic interchange, transmission congestion, the inclusion of a diversity of generation technologies, production cost modeling, the simulation of energy markets, emissions restrictions and trading, and other compliance mechanisms such as energy efficiency.

The MISO and PJM joint study produced many insights. Two of these rise to the top of the analysis according to the study authors, namely:
  • variation in natural gas prices and state policies on resource economics are at least as important as state’s implementation of CPP rules, and
  • standardization of the energy efficiency across state lines may bring significant savings.

Regardless of the eventual implementation (if any) of the Clean Power Plan, many stakeholders in MISO and PJM and elsewhere across the United States are taking steps to address the core issues presented by the rule. The comprehensive modeling capabilities of PLEXOS make PLEXOS the ideal tool for this type of analysis.

Energy Storage for Smart Grids – 1st Edition

Energy Storage for Smart Grids

1st Edition

A great book containing an excellent chapter dedicated to using PLEXOS to simulate optimal hydro storage solutions for volatile wind energy driven electricity markets thanks to modelling by the Mid-continent Independent System Operator (MISO) in the US.

Description

Energy storage is a main component of any holistic consideration of smart grids, particularly when incorporating power derived from variable, distributed and renewable energy resources. Energy Storage for Smart Grids delves into detailed coverage of the entire spectrum of available and emerging storage technologies, presented in the context of economic and practical considerations.

Featuring the latest research findings from the world’s foremost energy storage experts, complete with data analysis, field tests, and simulation results, this book helps device manufacturers develop robust business cases for the inclusion of storage in grid applications. It also provides the comparisons and explanations grid planners and operators need to make informed decisions about which storage solutions will be most successful when implemented in operational grids.
