Unlocking Distributed Energy Resources

Advancements in business models and technologies of distributed energy resources (DER) open new possibilities for electricity generation, transmission, and distribution. Many regulatory practices were designed without consideration of such opportunities, and may erect barriers to deployment of these resources. Our Unlocking Distributed Resources work includes a primer on traditional utility ratemaking that frames DER debates and explores state and federal jurisdiction over DER compensation.
