The rapid growth of renewable energy in recent years is having a profound impact on US power markets. Whether it be driven by state mandates, corporate commitments, or carbon mitigation goals, renewable saturation within certain markets is reaching a tipping point. This is forcing regulators to further examine how to balance the coming collision of clean energy and power grid operations and reliability. The future of both renewables and conventional fuels remain leveraged to these power market issues. At the same time, grid edge (smart grid) and renewable technology improvements are promising innovative solutions to solving these challenges. The combined strengths of Wood Mackenzie, GTM Research and MAKE provide a unique view across the entire power & renewables value chain. Following on the GTM US Power & Renewables summit in November 2017, this collaboration brought together power market experts and stakeholders who are front and center in navigating these new market dynamics.
