Over the last two years, the number of renewable projects in the PJM interconnection queue has sky-rocketed, bringing with it a whole new set of challenges for developers. Solar and offshore wind projects will dominate this surge.

Navigating the PJM interconnection process for wind and solar projects presents an overview of the queue process, related industry trends, and some of the emerging issues related to network upgrades and cost exposure for renewable projects. You’ll learn:

  • How the PJM interconnection process uses a sequential cluster-based assessment made up of five major milestones.
  • Two recent case studies that illustrate the complexity of uncertain queue changes and supply-demand dynamics.
  • Why interconnection-related diligence at the sub-regional level is critical for increasing renewable penetration in PJM.
