High penetration solar deployment
Table of contents
Part of the SunShot Systems Integration efforts, the goal of the High Penetration Solar Deployment projects is to accelerate the placement of these systems into.
Description:Publication 2 Challenges of solar deployment at high penetration The benefits and challenges of large scale PV penetration have been described in a number of analyses Brinkman et al At low penetration, PV typically displaces the highest cost generation sources Denholm et al. This figure is from a previous analysis that used a production cost model simulating the western United States Denholm et al. It illustrates how PV displaces the highest cost generation, and reduces the need for peaking capacity due to its coincidence with demand patterns. Figure is modified from Denholm et al.
