ACORE – Ensuring Low-Cost Reliability: Resource Adequacy Recommendations for a Clean Energy Grid

The increasing frequency and severity of extreme weather events, as well as the rapid growth of renewable energy resources, is causing regulators and power system operators to re-evaluate market structures to ensure reliable service. Market operators, such as U.S. RTO/ISOs, are fundamentally reassessing this topic – commonly known as resource adequacy (RA) – to ensure their markets function reliably with the current and projected future resource mix.

ACORE, in collaboration with the American Clean Power Association and the Solar Energy Industries Association, has produced a new whitepaper with Grid Strategies on RA. These joint renewable sector recommendations include general reforms to power market structures that will enable the reliable electricity that consumers need while also delivering the low-cost, clean power they increasingly demand. Join ACORE, Grid Strategies, leading renewable energy developers and financiers for a presentation and commentary on the findings.
