    ScottMadden Compares Utility-Scale and Distributed Renewables and Shares Integration Strategies for High-Renewable Penetrations


    August 15, 2019 - ScottMadden, Inc.

     

      ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading management consulting firms specializing in energy, recently released the white paper, “Shaping a Path Toward High-Renewable Penetration: A Comparison of Utility-Scale and Distributed Renewables.” This report explores the differences between utility-scale and distributed renewables and how best to integrate and effectively manage these resources to maximize benefits to customers and the grid.

      Over the last decade, the proliferation of renewable generation has changed how owners and operators manage the economic and operational aspects of the grid, from planning through the delivery of energy. While there are some common benefits and challenges to integrating renewables, not all renewables are created equal. As more states transition to high-renewable energy penetrations, utilities will need to be nuanced in their thinking about the best portfolio of products to offer their customers.

      “A thorough understanding of the current state is key when developing renewable energy strategies for the future. This white paper evaluates key differences between utility-scale and distributed renewables, explores which states currently operate with high-renewable energy penetrations, and discusses the strategies electric utilities and grid operators may pursue with the continued growth of renewables,” shares Paul Quinlan, clean tech manager at ScottMadden.
