An Investigation of the Error in Proxy Generation

To reduce operational risk exposure in proxy revenue swaps and proxy generation PPA’s, cash settlement calculations are based on what a project should have generated; as derived from a wind speed-based proxy generation. DNV GL, in collaboration with UMass, will investigate the error in proxy generation and proxy revenue for correlations between magnitude of error, time of day, and weather conditions.

How Utilities can Expand Their Renewables Portfolio While Improving Grid Resiliency

Understanding how best to expand your renewable energy portfolio can be challenging. A comprehensive understanding of how wind, utility scale solar and behind the meter solar can feed into a system to meet demand is important. Quantifying the coincident renewable generation with daily peak load or potential resource scarcity issues during cold snaps or heat waves has been challenging with limited historical datasets. DNV has used its stochastic modeling capabilities to create 20,000 years of simulated wind, solar and load data to investigate how the inclusion of offshore wind can help to compliment existing DER and increase grid resiliency. This capability allows for a better projection of future variability as it allows us to evaluate the full spectrum of weather conditions that drive power production instead of a simple evaluation of historical behavior. The inclusion of offshore wind to the regional electric grid can allow the grid to benefit from the portfolio effect due to the distributed resource. DNV goes beyond just illustrating the time of day generation benefits for offshore wind and BTM solar and demonstrates how the risk of too little or too much DER resource can be matched with power demand to improve or update system and transmission planning processes.

Renewables will contribute to the energy system decarbonization with green hydrogen. But, how and when?

DNV will briefly present the future growth of hydrogen, specifically breaking growth by different end-use applications. Then DNV will present the first wind + hydrogen and solar + hydrogen projects that have been developed, explaining the unique reasons and economics for why these projects were justified. These projects will be used to present the challenges of bringing greater renewable+hydrogen projects online at scale. Finally, we will explain how the renewable industry can help accelerate the decarbonization of our energy system by understanding the use cases for hydrogen, whether siting renewable projects close to hydrogen loads (ports and industrial areas) is critical, and overall how to enable green hydrogen to replace grey/blue hydrogen faster.

Storage Plus Solar Design: Upfront Overbuild, or Augmentation? The Opportunities and Risks with Each Approach

Has the industry settled on a standard approach or are we still evolving such that each developer has their own strategy? In this panel, DNV’s solar and energy storage experts will join leading integrators to discuss a variety of build strategies, cost considerations, and the pros and cons with each approach. Topics covered will include detailed technical considerations including various charge/discharge strategies, ITC compliance, battery degradation, utilization of DC/DC converters to remove voltage mismatches, and plant production modeling. The panel will also address trends in the industry towards longer useful life expectations and stricter safety requirements of the batteries, both in standalone and paired with renewables. DNV and its industry partners will explore case studies, results from its NY BEST test lab, and its expectations for the future based on our experience over the last decade.
