Resource Siting & Risk Assessment
As more renewable resources and flexible loads are entering the grid, it is becoming more and more important for developers and investors to identify the right location for their development plan. Traditionally, these "siting" activities have been limited to considering only reliability aspects of the grids i.e. grid connectivity as per relevant ISO/RTO interconnection criteria. However, grid congestion, environmental and real estate attributes, resource potentials, and underlying regulatory paradigm are playing a much more important role than before. In Zero-Emission Grid, we utilize our regional expertise in conjunction with our in-house automated tools, to depict a more comprehensive prospecting roadmap for our customers in a form of layered historical and futuristic heatmaps.
Following this service, our customers will have a clear picture of the regional landscape for where they should or should not consider new investments, and if they do, what upfront and system upgrades cost they can expect. Additionally, they will learn how the identified project location could perform under various upside and downside grid and market scenarios.
