The first in a series of joint (HNEI, HECO, and GE) grid modeling studies, this study developed and calibrated dynamic production cost models for the Oahu grid. The models can help the utility identify technologies and operating strategies to enable the system to manage higher amounts of as-available renewable energy, and evaluate the technical and economic impacts of different power system scenarios for the island of Oahu.
