Virginia’s Energy Transition explores the impacts of the Commonwealth employing a number of advanced energy resources to build a 100% carbon-free grid. Advanced Energy Economy worked in collaboration with GridLab and the Greenlink Group to map out how Virginia could move to a 100% carbon-free grid. The Greenlink Group used ATHENIA, energy resource modeling software, to assess the impacts and opportunities of transitioning Virginia to a 100% carbon-free grid. The analysis produced the Business-as-Usual projection out to 2050, based on the Integrated Resource Plans of Virginia’s two investor-owned utilities. Greenlink, GridLab, and Advanced Energy Economy defined three zero-carbon scenarios with different target years – 2030, 2040, and 2050 – by which Virginia would reach a 100% carbon-free grid.
