Book 2: Scope & Input Assumptions
Book 2 summarizes 2012 RTEP input assumptions that drove 2012 RTEP process cycle studies, including the public policy drivers mandated by the states within PJM’s footprint. Book 2 also describes planning criteria – including those specified by NERC – and the PJM RTEP process methodologies used to test the PJM transmission system for compliance within the context of the criteria and scope of each study discussed in Book 3 and Book 4.
Book 3: Baseline & Market Efficiency Results
Book 3 provides descriptions and results from those studies conducted as part of PJM’s 2012 RTEP process cycle of studies. In particular, Book 3 also discusses the unprecedented set of studies PJM conducted to identify the reliability impacts imposed by generator deactivations.
Book 4: Scenario & Interregional Study Results
Book 4 discusses 2012 RTEP scenario studies that examined the impact of federal and state public policy initiatives on PJM from the perspective of at-risk generation, renewable portfolio standards and higher than forecasted load levels.
Book 5: PJM RTEP State Summaries
Book 5 offers a state-by-state review of input parameters including load and generation (renewable and nonrenewable), major RTEP upgrades, summaries of scenario studies and interregional studies as well as the regulatory and public policy landscape now underlying PJM’s regional transmission expansion planning process.
