Development of a Clean Power Plan for the West


Synapse and Tellus Institute developed a plan for the aggressive implementation of energy efficiency and renewable resources in seven Interior West states.  The analysis included PROSYM electricity market simulation modeling, a technical assessment of cost-effective energy efficiency opportunities, a technical and economic assessment of renewable resource potential, and the development of policies for overcoming market barriers to these clean resources.  The study also assessed the role of renewable and distributed generation resources in addressing transmission constraints.

Project completed in May 2004.
