This webinar reviews these novel changes to electric power system planning.

The extensive and continuing build-out of intermittent renewable capacity on the electric power grid has created a series of novel challenges for the electric system, and for those developing modeling tools to address these never-before-seen challenges for “keeping on the lights.” It also discusses how the AIMMS-based REStore model was developed to begin the process of better understanding these challenges to the continued growth of the U.S. electric power system. The AIMMS platform allowed OnLocation to develop a detailed yet efficient two-step Linear Programming model and helped facilitate collaboration among multiple developers.
