Minnesota’s Smarter Grid – ACORE

 

Minnesota’s Smarter Grid, a study performed by Vibrant Clean Energy, models eight future Eastern Interconnection electric system scenarios to determine the optimal pathways through which Minnesota can meet its state goal of decarbonizing its economy 80 percent from 2005 levels by 2050 (80×50). A more flexible grid with increased interstate transmission can efficiently support the large amount of renewable resources needed to meet decarbonization goals while providing service at costs lower than current costs and costs incurred through a lack of interstate transmission. The study finds that scenarios with interstate transmission expansion can introduce annual savings to Minnesota consumers of up to $2.8 billion, with an annual savings for Minnesotan households of up to $1,165 per year.
