Utilities often procure new generation through processes that fail to be technology and resource-neutral leading them to own non-ideal portfolios and ultimately creating significantly higher than necessary customer costs and carbon emissions. A new report from utility industry experts outlines how “all-source procurement” allows technologies to compete fairly against each other to best meet the utility’s need. The end result is cleaner utility portfolios and savings for customers.
Commissioned by the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy and Energy Innovation, four industry experts have combed through procurement examples from recent years in Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, and New Mexico to bring you a policy toolkit outlined in Making the Most of the Power Plant Market: Best Practices for All-Source Electric Generation Procurement.
