ISO-NE/NYISO Forecast Webinar: Release 3.1

$ 100.00 USD
Free

ISO-NE/NYISO: New England and New York all have low renewable penetrations at present, but aggressive state clean energy policies will drive rapid change to the supply mix. As renewable resources supplant thermal generation, price volatility will rise and the need for capacity resources will grow as thermal generation retires and capacity markets tighten.

PJM/MISO Forecast Webinar: Release 3.2

$ 100.00 USD
Free

PJM/MISO: PJM and MISO both currently have low renewable penetrations, but interconnection queues indicate that change is coming with a surge of incoming renewables that will place severe economic pressure on inflexible thermal generation, particularly coal. Accelerating demand for clean energy will support PPA offtake contracts and drive increased REC prices for renewable generation. However, offtake contracts will be needed for standalone storage in both markets until the 2030s as renewable resources supplant thermal generation, driving price volatility and capacity prices upward. This webinar will discuss Ascend's market outlooks for PJM and MISO as this transition progresses. Please email marketintelligence@ascendanalytics.com for a free video.

Renewable & Storage Procurement in CA

$ 100.00 USD
Free

Renewable & Storage Procurement in CA: 2021 was a big year for renewable and storage procurement in California. Community Choice Aggregators continued to take the lead in seeking power purchase agreements for renewable energy and battery storage in CAISO, driven by internal goals for annual and 24-7 clean energy as well as state mandates following the Mid-Term Reliability (MTR) Order. In this webinar, Ascend's clean energy procurement experts will discuss their take aways from 2021 including: What is the effect of inflation and supply chain bottlenecks on PPA prices? What goes into an offer valuation (price vs value and qualitative assessment)? What kinds of projects (and where) are winning in the market? How is long-duration storage faring as a new product? How will California utilities fulfill the 'baseload' clean energy requirements of the MTR? Where is the market going in 2022 and beyond?
