RMI – Economic Dispatch Hub Discussion & Demo
Join RMI for a live demo and presentation of our new Economic Dispatch Hub. A new feature of RMI’s Utility Transition Hub, this dashboard displays monthly operational economics for every active coal plant. It compares the cost for each power plant to generate electricity versus the market price of electricity to determine when a coal plant is (or isn’t) economic to run. This type of analysis has been done for the ISO/RTO regions of the country but this is the first publicly available analysis of non-ISO/RTO regions like the Southeast and West. Our data illuminates massive opportunities for reduced reliance on coal and increased customer savings over time.
During the webinar, we will demo the tool and discuss key findings around self-commitment practices, with a focus on the need for accountability and modernization in non-ISO/RTO states.
