Title: 2018 Standard Scenarios Report: A U.S. Electricity Sector Outlook

Abstract

This report summarizes the results of 30 plus forward-looking 'standard scenarios' of the U.S. power sector simulated by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) using the Regional Energy Deployment System (ReEDS) and Distributed Generation (dGen) capacity expansion models. The annual Standard Scenarios, which are now in their fourth year, have been designed to capture a range of possible power system futures considering a variety of factors that impact power sector evolution.
