Utility-Scale Renewable Energy & Storage

Informing utility-scale renewable energy and storage deployment

What We Do

EMP’s original research and technical support informs a host of stakeholders – including regulators, policymakers, grid operators, utilities, the renewable and storage industries, and the communities impacted by utility-scale resource development – to facilitate the transition to a cleaner grid.

Our Approach

EMP synthesizes foundational data, conducts original research, and provides technical support to public agencies and others on utility-scale renewable energy and storage. Our work seeks to inform domestic and global decision-making among regulators, policymakers, grid operators, utilities, the renewable energy and storage industries, and communities impacted by development.

EMP’s work spans: (1) recurring market tracking and data products; (2) cost, benefit, and market analysis; (3) grid operations, integration, and infrastructure; (4) community impacts and public response; (5) program and policy analysis; and (6) technical assistance.
