TITLE:          Energy procurement in the presence of intermittent sources
DATE:          Monday, November 26, 2012
TIME:          11:00 am - 12:00  p.m.
ROOM:       DC 1331

Abstract:
The increasing penetration of intermittent, unpredictable renewable energy sources, such as wind energy, poses significant challenges for the utility companies trying to incorporate renewable energy into their portfolios. As a result, there is considerable discussion about how electricity markets should be restructured in order to facilitate the integration of renewable energy into the grid. Suggestions include adding additional markets, moving markets, closer to real-time, etc. In this talk, I will discuss how the optimal energy procurement of a utility company changes as a result of an increasing penetration of intermittent renewable resources, and what impact this should have on electricity market structure. (Joint with Sachin Adlakha and Jayakrishnan Nair)
