Fossil-Fuel Options for Power Sector Net-Zero Emissions with Sequestration Tax Credits

Three of the main challenges in achieving rapid decarbonization of the electric power sector in the near term are getting to net-zero while maintaining grid reliability and minimizing cost. In this

Impact of carbon dioxide removal technologies on deep decarbonization of the electric power sector

Impacts of carbon removal technologies on electric sector investments, costs, and emissions are explored using a detailed capacity planning and dispatch model with hourly resolution to show that adding carbon removal to a mix of low-carbon generation technologies lowers the costs of deep decarbonization.

Role of Hydrogen in a Low-Carbon Electric Power System: A Case Study

The European Union set a 2050 decarbonization target in the Paris Agreement to reduce carbon emissions by 90–95% relative to 1990 emission levels. The path toward achieving those deep decarbonization

The design space for long-duration energy storage in decarbonized power systems

Long-duration energy storage (LDES) is a potential solution to intermittency in renewable energy generation. In this study we have evaluated the role of LDES in decarbonized electricity systems and



How much bulk energy storage is needed to decarbonize electricity

High cost and technical immaturity of bulk (multi-hour) electricity storage (BES) systems are often cited as major hurdles to increasing the penetration of intermittent renewables. We use a simple

Impact of operational flexibility on electricity generation planning with renewable and carbon targets

Recent work on operational flexibility-a power system's ability to respond to variations in demand and supply-has focused on the impact of large penetration of renewable generation on existing power

Future cost-competitive electricity systems and their impact on US CO2 emissions

Carbon dioxide emissions from electricity generation are a major cause of anthropogenic climate change. The deployment of wind and solar power reduces these emissions, but is subject to the

Enhanced Decision Support for a Changing Electricity Landscape : The GenX Configurable Electricity Resource Capacity Expansion Model Revision 1 . 0

The electric power sector is currently undergoing several important transitions, which individually and collectively have the potential to transform the design, operation, and characteristics of

Quantifying the value of CCS for the future electricity system

Many studies have quantified the cost of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) power plants, but relatively few discuss or appreciate the unique value this technology provides to the electricity system.
