Based on a series of interviews with thirteen operating entities in the Western Interconnection of the United States, this report summarizes practices, lessons learned, and priorities related to the implementation of wind and solar forecasting. The operating entities provided insights regarding cost assignment, forecasting accuracy and uses, data collection, curtailment and outages, probabilistic forecasting, distributed solar production, control room integration, and staff training, among other topics.

Technological innovations are supporting increased distributed solar penetration levels. One important innovation involves the use of advanced inverter functionality to address PV grid integration challenges, and, in many cases, may only require software and operations protocol updates of inverters currently in use. The report describes the use of advanced inverters to support voltage and frequency level control as distributed generation comes on and off-line. Policy and regulatory consideration to support advanced inverter deployment are also presented in the paper.

This report presents a brief introduction to the IRP process as it has been implemented in the United States and describes the purpose and use of the IRP process. The report presents several case studies of IRPs and summarizes how they differ in terms of planning horizon, frequency of updates, representation of existing resources and planned retirements, and relationship with long-term procurement processes. The case studies include examples of best-practices for including renewable energy and energy efficiency considerations in the IRP process.

New DG compensation mechanisms—such as value of solar and distributed locational marginal pricing—can offer additional value to generators while dampening the volatility of high DG penetration on the grid. Various pricing options, and policy options for protecting revenue adequacy for utilities are assessed in this report to provide readers with a variety of novel options to better compensate all stakeholders.

This report examines various compensation methodologies for demand response programs in Mexico. Demand response (DR) can refer to a variety of approaches to changing the amount and timing of customers' electricity use, allowing the electricity supplier to more easily balance electricity supply and demand. The level of compensation for a DR program will depend greatly upon both the regulatory context of the electricity supplier, as well as the economic circumstances of the DR providers. This report presents three case studies, including New England, California, and Hawaii.

Recent market liberalization and energy sector reform in Mexico is pushing forward a wave of new potential for DG. This report explores how DG can fulfill many of Mexico’s energy goals. It presents specific policy options to better integrate DG as a cost-effective source of energy generation. Although specifically tailored to Mexico, many of the report’s recommendations can be applied in developing contexts.

Mexico's energy reform will have far-reaching effects on how people produce and consume electricity in the country. Market liberalization will open the door to an increasing number of options for Mexican residential, commercial, and industrial consumers to deploy distributed generation (DG). Distributed generation is an option for consumers who want to produce their own electricity and provide electricity services to others. This report seeks to provide guidance to Mexican officials on designing economic and regulatory policies for DG.
