United States Project Notice - Application Of Banking Scoring And Rating For Coherent Risk Measures In Electricity Systems

Project Notice

PNR 62477
Project Name Application of Banking Scoring and Rating for Coherent Risk Measures in Electricity Systems
Project Detail The Lehigh University team will develop a framework for asset and system risk management that can be incorporated into current electricity system operations to improve economic efficiency through the establishment of an electric assets risk bureau. Discrepancies exist between the power scheduled by a system operator and actual power generated and/or consumed. These discrepancies—exacerbated by unplanned contingencies (e.g., variable renewable energy sources, natural disasters)—are caused by multiple factors, including the different financial, environmental, and risk preferences of power producers, consumers, and aggregators. The Lehigh team will use scoring and rating concepts from banking and financial institutions as well as optimization methods in dispatching power systems to help system operators and electricity markets schedule resources. The Lehigh teams research will counteract two failures in electricity system operations — imperfect information and missing markets for risk management products—by developing risk scores at the asset level based on historical data and incorporating the asset scores into decision making at the system level. Potential Impact: PERFORM projects will design methods and risk scores to communicate the physical delivery risk of an energy asset’s offer and design grid management systems that organically capture uncertainty. These management systems will evaluate and hedge the system risk position to meet or exceed a baseline system risk index. This pursuit will achieve the following area impacts:
