Power Shift: How DERs Are Creating a New Balance of Power

View All Sessions

About this session:

What will electrical power consumption in North America look like in 2050? Will centralized power generation still dominate, or will distributed energy resources--DERs--shift the balance of power generation to the energy end consumer? Our presentation takes “a look back” from the future to show how expanding DER implementation is laying the groundwork for a new balance of power, freeing organizations to independently pursue sustainability and reliability goals, and how monetizing DER energy assets is accelerating that shift. Our case study reveals how one university monetizes solar, battery storage, and demand-side energy management strategies to power its future, today.

1. Examine how the "balance of power” will shift from generators and utilities to the end energy consumer over the next decade.
2. Explore the ways in which flexible demand and aggregation at the consumer level will change the grid infrastructure.
3. Investigate the impact that distributed energy resources (DER) and microgrids will have on the state of grid modernization.
4. Identify additional renewable resources, beyond solar and wind, that will see the greatest increase in adoption for both supply and demand of electricity.
