State of Energy in the Northeastern North America

The Northeastern North America region covers seven states in the United States and six provinces in Canada. Their energy markets are already integrated and could be even more so in the future. However, a very limited understanding of the energy realities of this region constrains the scope of solutions that can be envisioned, and [...]

Getting on an Efficient Decarbonization Track – An Economic Study of a Regional Approach to Electricity Markets in Northeastern North America

This report’s objective is to quantify the economic benefits of creating better intertie capacity between electricity markets in northeastern North America. The benefits of better interconnecting northeastern electricity markets are significant in nature, but not widely acknowledged. Many decarbonization studies ignore integration, which is problematic when game-changing hydropower reservoirs could be used to help [...]

Deep decarbonization in Northeastern North America: The value of electricity market integration and hydropower

In several countries, electricity systems are under strong decarbonization pressure. In particular, the Canadian provinces of Quebec and Ontario as well as the states of the northeastern United States have committed to cut their greenhouse emissions by more than 70% (with respect to emission levels of 1990). Increased collaboration and integration between jurisdictions could [...]

Accelerating Benders decomposition for short-term hydropower maintenance scheduling

Published in the European Journal of Operational Research Download article » Summary: Maintenance of power generators is essential for reliable and efficient electricity production. Because generators under maintenance are typically inactive, optimal planning of maintenance activities must consider the impact of maintenance outages on the system operation. However, in hydropower systems finding a minimum [...]

Deep decarbonization in Northeastern North America: The value of electricity market integration and hydropower

Dans plusieurs pays, les systèmes électriques sont soumis à une forte pression de décarbonisation. En particulier, les provinces canadiennes du Québec et de l'Ontario ainsi que les États du nord-est des États-Unis se sont engagés à réduire leurs émissions de gaz à effet de serre de plus de 70 % (par rapport aux niveaux [...]

Northeast USA-Canada Decarbonization: Opportunities and Challenges of Regional Electricity Sector Intergration for High Renewable Penetration

Deeper regional integration in the electricity sector across the North American Northeast can bring substantial benefits in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through the deployment of renewable energy. In this region, as elsewhere in the world, GHG emission reduction targets imply the dual challenge of electrifying many energy needs and decarbonizing electricity production. Findings [...]
