Renewable Energy Data Creation and Analysis



First Name: 


Last Name: 



Project Description

Wind and solar energy generation time series data sets are critical for electricity system modeling and understanding the low carbon transition of the grid. This project will focus on creating python-based scripts for converting weather data to wind and solar generation profiles. Further, the project includes an analysis of wind and solar generation and their correlation with load in different geographies to understand the potential requirements for conventional generation and storage investments in a future low carbon grid. 

Undergraduate Contribution

The student will be responsible for writing the python scripts and conducting the analysis of renewable energy generation and demand profiles. 

Requirements/Application Instructions

Experience in python programming; coursework should include the renewable energy course.
