Hear technical insights on significantly expanding the use of solar PV and energy storage in Florida. Learn about what Florida municipal utilities are doing to expand solar energy and the role of storage and other strategies for reaching the high penetration levels of solar PV expected with aggressive clean energy goals. Included was an overview of solar expansion and characteristics of the solar resource in Florida, energy storage for ramp mitigation, capacity value of solar and storage, balancing and reserves considerations for high penetration solar PV, and a look at distributed generation growth in Florida.
Results presented are associated with a State Energy Strategies project funded in part by the U.S. Department of Energy, Solar Energy Technologies Office. Partners in the project are all the Florida municipal electric utilities, the Florida Municipal Electric Association, the State of Florida Office of Energy, the National Renewable Energy Lab, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (host of this webinar), and Nhu Energy (project lead).
