Regulating the Utility of the Future: Implications for the Grid Edge
With new technologies and consumer demand for cleaner energy rapidly transforming the power sector (most notably with the proliferation of distributed energy resources (DER) like solar PV, demand response, and energy storage), the need for a "utility of the future" is at the forefront of conversations within and outside of utilities.

This 89-page report analyzes the five states that are paving the path for the utility of the future, whether driven by the opportunity that grid edge technologies can offer or by technological, financial, and political pressure. With proceedings underway in California, New York, Hawaii, Minnesota and Massachusetts, this report identifies key issues and positions of stakeholders, and speculates on the business opportunities that may be created for grid edge companies. For companies outside of the dockets, this report can be viewed as a field guide with which to identify the most appropriate proceedings to track and engage.
