Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) Feasibility Study
Massachusetts Department of Energy
This study discussed the technical feasibility as well as the implementation feasibility for the new RPS requirements for Massachusetts. The study presented the various energy markets available, especially how renewable generators participate in the markets.
The study elaborated on capacity markets, day-ahead energy markets, and real-time energy markets, and how they affected the RPS requirements, together with the implications of Renewable Energy Credits (RECs). Core to the study was the implications of committed capacity renewable resources, and ultimately their feasibility.
