Optimize Grid Integration Design Through Cost and Congestion Management

Transmission congestion can have a significant impact on the energy market and affect revenue potential. Many markets use locational marginal pricing (LMP) to determine system congestion, curtailment, and negative pricing. LMP is a way for wholesale electric prices to reflect the value of the power at different locations while accounting for patterns of load, capacity for generation, and physical limits of the transmission system. EPE has extensive experience in performing energy market analysis studies using customizable computer models to calculate prices at specific locations and market hubs. EPE works with our clients to optimize grid integration design by managing cost and congestion factors. We use our experience with transmission and distribution planning and system studies to design and implement electrical grids that reflect the current needs of our clients. Effective energy market analysis facilitates future development with predictable results. Trust Electric Power Engineers, Inc. with Energy Market Analysis.
