On the Road to 100% Renewables
The march toward 100% renewables is well underway and, if achieved, the US could see the retirement of 800,000 MWs of fossil generation in the next 25 years. The loss of this amount of fossil generation could result in major electric system challenges. One of these is the likely increase in existing fossil plant cycling to cope with the variable nature of renewables like wind and solar. Typical cycling impacts include higher production costs and lower reliability. Sound power plant operating strategies and optimized asset performance depend on knowing the cost of cycling and what drives power plants to cycle.
What We Do and Offer
Renewable Impacts LLC (RI) conducts research, consults and publishes information on power plant cycling costs and causality. Our reports cover cycling costs, trends and benchmarks based on public data. Our cost of cycling reports apply EPRI and NREL cost of cycling methodologies. Our power plant cycling causality software is able to identify which cycling drivers are responsible for your plant cycling. RI offers training to address power plant cost of cycling and cycling causality.
Reconnaissance Level Cost of Cycling
RI is intent on developing cost of cycling answers for a broad audience using proprietary RI reconnaissance level analysis tools that deliver cost of cycling answers in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost of traditional analysis. RI hopes that with wide spread availability of reconnaissance cost of cycling information will come wide spread understanding of cycling impacts to better address current electric grid dynamics.
