Distributed Energy Resources: Seizing Opportunities While Managing Distribution Grid Impacts

Distributed energy resources (DERs) are reshaping the operation of the electric power system. How can we coordinate DERs with centralized generation, in economically sustainable ways, to drive savings and enhance efficiency — to the mutual benefit of all entities involved? This is the question answered in this research and case-study driven webinar featuring San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) Chief Engineer Tom Bialek and GTM Research Director Ben Kellison.

On September 29, dive deeper into this challenge in the live webinar, “Distributed Energy Resources: Seizing Opportunities While Managing Distribution Grid Impacts.” During this session we will review the findings of a recent Greentech Media (GTM) whitepaper that discusses the significant economic and environmental benefits that distributed energy resources (DERs) provide both utilities and renewable project developers as they shift toward a more sustainable and resilient energy system.

Kellison, who leads GTM’s Network Management and Renewables Integration research, will review some of his firm’s latest forecasts on the DER market. And, Bialek will outline his experience developing SDG&E’s microgrid project at Borrego Springs and the challenges, successes and lessons learned in building a bridge to the future on effectively managing DERs.
