The US electricity sector is in the midst of an accelerating transformation. More than 20 states currently have mandates or goals to get the majority of their energy from renewables by 2050. Onshore wind and solar plants have been the largest sources of new generation capacity in recent years. Offshore wind commitments have grown to 29 GW by 2035. Transmission plays a critical role in the cost-effective integration of these resources to meet state targets. Researchers at Boston University’s Institute of Sustainable Energy recently presented their paper, “The value of diversifying uncertain renewable generation through the transmission system” to highlight the cost savings associated with interconnecting systems with high renewables penetration.
