This paper offers lessons learned from the 16 regional and utility-specific, distributed solar generation studies summarized in A Review of Solar PV Benefit and Cost Studies, a July 2013 report by the Rocky Mountain Institute.
This report describes how as global electricity demand increases, governments are designing and implementing policies to scale up and catalyze renewable energy.
This paper explores the impending arrival of the solar-plus-battery as a fundamentally different "utility in a box." The report details scenarios in the U.S.
This website provides case studies of local governments that are powering their operations and lowering their emissions using renewable energy, such as solar, wind, and geothermal technologies and methane capture from landfills.
This spreadsheet-based model can be used to estimate the delivered cost of energy for power plants, including the levelised cost of energy as well as transmission and distribution (T&D).
The World Bank and the International Finance Corporation provide the Global Solar Atlas—in addition to a series of global, regional and country GIS data layers and poster maps—to support the scale-up of solar power in their client countries.
The Jobs and Economic Development Impact (JEDI) models are user-friendly screening tools that estimate the economic impacts of constructing and operating power plants, fuel production facilities, and other projects at the local (usually state) level.
Bloomberg New Energy Finance provides a full market review of a rapidly changing energy landscape in the United States.
This article in the the ICER Chronicle details a novel approach to a distributed solar tariff, called the “Value of Solar” tariff (“VOST”), which addresses important utility and customer issues, and offers some significant improvements over traditional net metering approaches.
