VX2020: Powering the Grid of the Future with Distributed Energy Resources

ENERGY-

Powering the Grid of the Future with Distributed Energy Resources
The growth of solar, wind, and storage continue to alter the energy landscape. Recent California power shutoffs demonstrated the rising risks of climate change, but they are also a reminder that policy makers need to boost electricity system reliability and resilience to support the transition to a low-carbon and more electrified economy. As regulators begin to transform California’s electric utilities from the classic model of top-down, one-way delivery service into a distributed system with microgrid resources that manage a host of dispersed generation and storage sources, how is the regulatory and market landscape shifting? Finally, what resources exist for project developers attempting to build community resilience, and where do potential public-private synergies exist?
