Letter from the Community Leader
The landscape of the utility industry is evolving, perhaps faster than it ever has. Among the most transformative new areas of the energy sector is the rise of distributed energy resources, or DERs.
The proliferation of DERs have created an opportunity to make serious in-roads across numerous goals of utility stakeholders: they help increase the reliability and resilience of power delivery, they tend to be less carbon-intensive than central power plants, and they can shift the equation to make energy delivery more affordable for end consumers. But that doesn’t mean that DERs don’t bring their own unique set of challenges, especially considering that the era of DERs is still relatively new.
