Solar Energy Innovation Network
The Solar Energy Innovation Network is a collaborative research effort administered by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and supported by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Office to develop and demonstrate new ways for solar energy to improve the affordability, reliability, and resiliency of the nation's electric grid. Utah's Team was selected!
Renewable Electricity Impacts and Solutions in Utah
Lead organization: Utah Clean Energy
Stakeholders: Utah Clean Energy, City of Moab, Park City, Salt Lake City, Rocky Mountain Power
Project Description: The Utah team aims to evaluate affordability and reliability of renewable generation for Salt Lake City, Park City, and Moab to inform an energy roadmap to meet the cities' clean energy and energy resiliency goals. The team seeks to identify the impacts of various electrification and demand side management technologies and programs and identify the technology and program options for deploying both customer-side and supply-side resources that are sufficient to meet defined load forecasts.
