In the US, the debate about when renewable energy will achieve “grid parity,�? or the ability to compete on equal footing with conventional sources of generation, generally assumes the continuation of at least some state and federal subsidies for wind power and utility-scale solar photovoltaics (PV). This analysis takes a different tack, purposefully excluding subsidies from the assessment of grid parity in order to provide a different, and perhaps more relevant, perspective on the competitiveness of the renewable energy sector.
