PJM has published an addendum to its Energy Transition in PJM: Emerging Characteristics of a Decarbonizing Grid paper to provide supporting information and context for the assumptions used in the study’s analysis.
The addendum (PDF) was developed in response to stakeholder questions and feedback to the second phase (PDF) of PJM’s ongoing effort to study the potential impacts of an evolving resource mix, including the accelerating integration of renewable resources.
The living study is designed to help identify gaps and opportunities in the current market construct and provide insights into the future of market design, transmission planning and reliable system operations.
The next phase of the study will consider additional sensitivities, including accelerated generation retirement of coal and gas, federal and state policies, and renewable integration in the Eastern Interconnection.
