Electric System Reliability:
Summary of low CO2 cases showing the value of nuclear thermal storage.
ERCOT22A.xlsx is the current ERCOT system with CO2 sources producing 59% of the energy (7.4 c/kWh).
ERCOT22A2.xlsx 40 GW NREL nuclear drops sources producing CO2 to 1% of the energy (10.7 c/kWh).
ERCOT22C1.xlsx 32 GW CRUSH (4 hr) nuclear has 1.6% CO2 from gas peaking and works with renewables (9.2 c/kWh).
Algorithm for energy storage charging and discharging in the above spreadsheets:
Other cases are on my previous web page.
