A DECARBONIZED NORTHEAST ELECTRICITY SECTOR

This scoping study focuses on the economic gains from a North American Northeast power sector integration. An hourly model of the regional power sector is develop and solved to minimize yearly investment and operation costs, under the constraint of reducing GHG by 80%. Gains from such a regional approach could in theory be significant, notably...
