Mar 19,  · “When you do the comparison, solar is the least-cost way to get energy onto the island, and maybe a decent amount of wind as well,” says Shelton. “The fuel cost [savings] is a way to pay for the resiliency,” he says. “We estimate that a very large amount of solar and storage would be funded by avoiding fuel costs for 10 years.”.

In Fossil2 the demand for energy is determined in a “least cost/energy services” framework of total U.S. energy demand. Following this approach, the model first projects the demand for energy services (heat, light, steam, shaft power) in each end-use category, and then calculates the share of service demand captured by end-use technologies.

My first book on all this, Least Cost Energy: Solving the CO2 Problem, was written in It all seemed so simple. The authors explain why they believe the most fundamental way to motivate IOUs to procure “least cost best fit” (LCBF)1 energy efficiency is to stop making supply-side investments so attractive by more closely aligning the utilities’ authorized returns with the cost of equity . The Energy Policy Act of requires the US Department of Energy (DOE) to develop a Least Cost Energy Strategy to be updated on a regular basis. Social and environmental costs are to be considered in addition to direct energy costs. Partly because the emphasis was on a least-cost strategy, DOE.
