New Renewable Energy Sources demand New Paradigm for Measuring, Monitoring Grid Success

CHEYENNE, Wyo., July 27, 2015 – CHEYENNE, Wyo., July 27, 2015 – Renewable power plants like wind and solar farms deliver energy differently than traditional power plants do – so the ways that renewable plants are evaluated by system operators, merchant buyers of renewables, and engineers should be different as well.

That’s according to a new analysis and white paper report, “Renewable Resource Production Metrics and Measures,” produced by Jim Detmers, former chief operating officer of largest regional grid in the Western U.S., the California Independent System Operator Corp. (California ISO). The Report was presented and discussed at the Wyoming Infrastructure Authority’s Spring Energy Conference.
