Market Simulation, Asset Valuation And Performance

PDF Analysis of Resource Adequacy - ERCOT Summer 2021
LCG performed an analysis of ERCOT for summer 2021 using market simulations with LCG’s UPLAN Network Power Model. Resource adequacy analysis for the region is critical during extreme summer loading conditions as the reserves have tightened because of recent retirements.
PDF 2021 ERCOT Electricity Market Outlook
The Outlook outlines future operation of the ERCOT nodal market, including Locational Marginal Prices (LMPs), load zone prices, hub prices and expected congestion.
PDF Frio County Line Upgrades Economic Benefit Analysis
This report was submitted to ERCOT by 7X Energy, a company with renewable generating assets in Texas, for the purpose of requesting an independent investigation of the proposed transmission upgrade options. LCG conducted studies for 7X Energy to identify ways to reduce the risk of curtailment and assess the cost benefits of those options. The proposed upgrades were approved with modification.
