The Role of Distributed Energy Resources in Today's Grid Transition

Electricity grids across the nation are undergoing a rapid transition due in part to accelerating adoption of renewable energy by utilities and distributed energy resources (DER) by customers. Utilities and their regulators are increasingly asking the question: do DER complement or frustrate this grid transition?

Gridworks, GridLab, and Utah Clean Energy collaborated to release a report summarizing how DER are increasingly seen by utilities and policymakers are a complement to evolving grid needs. The purpose of this paper is to orient policy makers to DER and their growing role in providing safe, affordable, and reliable service.

Read the report online.

Participate in a October 5th webinar introducing and discussing the paper.
