GenX

The Optimal Electricity Generation Expansion (GenX) model
Wide area electricity resource capacity planning with distributed energy resources

  • Highly configurable, state of the art electricity resource capacity planning
  • Ideal for system planning and modeling system-level value of distributed resources
  • Captures key tradeoffs that drive optimal resource investment and siting
    • Economies of unit scale
    • Locational value
    • Impacts on distribution and transmission networks
  • Competition between conventional and distributed resources
  • Captures marginal decline in value as DER penetration increases
