Offshore wind business feasibility in a flexible and electrified Dutch energy market by 2030

November 15, 2022

Offshore wind business feasibility
Offshore wind is the primary supplier of CO2-free electricity moving towards decarbonising the Dutch power system. The installed capacity aims to increase sevenfold to 21.5 GW by 2030. However, the current market trends of increasing renewable capacity, industrial electrification, gas and CO2 prices, the expansion of interconnection, and the need for grid reinforcements are making the power market more volatile. These trends, together with the phasing out of subsidies, result in increasing the risks for offshore wind business.

Battery storage Stability for the energy transition

whitePaper | November 29, 2022

Renewables are expected to account for 80–90% of power generation globally by 2050. Due to their dependence on weather conditions, wind and solar power cannot provide constant baseload power during all hours of the day, and measures have to be taken to compensate for this intermittency. The good news is that such imbalances or fluctuations can be mitigated effectively using battery energy storage systems (BESSs).

Solar Power In Your Community

whitePaper | June 6, 2022

Installed solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity has grown rapidly in the United States over the past decade, reaching nearly 74 gigawatts-AC as of the end of 2020. Approximately one-third of this capacity (28 gigawatts) is distributed PV, including residential, community, and commercial solar installations (Davis et al. 2021). A combination of technology cost declines, federal incentives, and state policy support have driven increased deployment and enabled more communities to access the benefits of PV. Increasingly, solar is playing an important role in local plans such as resilience planning, sustainability planning, and climate action planning.

Electric Utility Regulatory Frameworks and Financial Incentives

whitePaper | August 8, 2022

Electric utility regulatory frameworks and financial incentives can address barriers to energy efficiency, renewable energy, and distributed energy resources (DERs) that are inherent in traditional utility regulatory models. Legislatures and electric utility regulators (often called public utility commissions) in many states are refining or replacing traditional utility financial policies to encourage utility actions and programs aligned with state policy goals. These states are adopting regulatory frameworks and financial incentives including revenue decoupling, multi-year rate plans (MYRPs), performance-based regulation (PBR), and performance incentive mechanisms (PIMs).
