Distributed Energy Resources and Microgrids: Applications, Technologies, and Economics

Length: Two days
Prerequisites: None, though a basic understanding of the electric business such as that presented in Electric Industry Overview (online course) or Understanding Today's Electricity Business (book) is helpful.
As distributed energy resources (DER) including load management, distributed generation, storage, and microgrids grow rapidly, utilities are struggling to develop sustainable strategies that integrate them into their physical operations and business models. This seminar explores the characteristics of these technologies and the associated challenges and opportunities. Participants will learn technical, economic, and regulatory details and discover strategies that energy companies and state regulators are taking to optimize use of DER.

What participants will learn

  • The basics of how the key distributed energy resources (DER) work

  • Operational characteristics, costs, and value of the key DER

  • What microgrids are and their characteristics, costs, and value

  • Challenges of integrating DER and microgrids into the electric grid

  • What utilities and regulators are doing to optimize use of DER and microgrids

  • How DER and microgrids may force changes to the utility business model
