A growing investment in renewable energy and distributed energy resources (DER) is creating opportunities also for ongoing modernization of the grid — and the effort shows no signs of letting up.
This paper reviews the conditions and process behind the rapid growth of renewable energy
Tests conducted by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory show that utility-scale photovoltaic plants are not only capable of providing essential reliability services that can enhance system flexibility and reliability without carbon emissions but can perform even better than conventional power plants.
A new gas-fired power plant equipped with five reciprocating engines was recently completed in Rochester, Minnesota. The project demonstrates why reciprocating engines are becoming increasingly popular for utility-scale power projects.
This article examines a $3.5 billion investment in new generation projects in Mexico, including the 890-MW Topolobampo II Combined Cycle Power Plant.
