MASTER'S PROJECT: Interdisciplinary Assessment of Utility Scale Solar Opportunities in the United States

Start Date: 
Jan 1, 2014
End Date: 
Apr 30, 2015
Summary: 

Our project conducted research in two phases. The first phase analyzed various factors - political, technical, regulatory, and geographic - that influence the uptake of utility scale solar across the 49 states of the United States. The second phase analyzed three components ranging from immediate to long term opportunities for utility scale solar, namely: Non-utility Solar PPA opportunities in California, Solar market attractiveness amidst pending coal retirements, and post ITC opportunities for Solar.
