Distributed Energy Resources: Net Metering and Grid Integration

3:30 PM - 4:30 PM 

Business & Policy

The United States has more than 12 million distributed generation units, which is about one-sixth the capacity of the nation’s existing centralized power plants. Use of distributed generation has increased for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to cost-effective renewable technology, advancing policies to encourage greater deployment of renewable technology and grid operators that rely on electricity service for all customers during the hours of peak use. 

This panel will discuss the costs and benefits of net metering and its value to the grid. It also raises questions around improvements, implications and the integration of DER’s with the grid.
