As the recent situation on the Texas power grid has shown, long-lasting and extreme bouts of heat are prone to increase power demand from customers to a level that could be difficult for utilities to handle. The increased power usage from air conditioning and the additional strain on the grid make these significant events that must be properly planned for and addressed ahead of time.
While perhaps the utilities of yesterday weren’t readily prepared for this type of strain on the grid, one of the hottest topics in 2019 for utilities comes from distributed energy resources, or DERs. Given the ability for DERs to really take the edge off of the utilities when it comes to overall strain, Carl Nelson of the Center for Energy and Environment has taken them up as key the technological strategy for the energy industry. In fact, at next week’s AESP Summer Conference in Toronto he’ll be sharing his insights on the topic as it relates to the Minnesota grid in his presentation ‘When Summer Serves a Hotdish of Peak Load, DERs Take Action.” If you’re still trying to decide whether or not to attend the conference, here’s a sneak preview of what Carl will be sharing to convince you of how valuable his talk will be!
