|Regulating the Utility of the Future: Implications for the Grid Edge|
|Published: January 13, 2015||Content info: 89 Pages||
New technologies and consumer demand for cleaner energy are rapidly transforming the power sector, most notably in the proliferation of distributed energy resources (DER) like solar PV, demand response, and energy storage. This DER growth is challenging traditional business models that are predicated on ever-growing demand for electricity and need for capital investments in centralized technologies.
The need for a "utility of the future" is at the forefront of conversations within and outside of utilities, with numerous conferences, reports, consulting pitches, and collaboratives addressing the theme. The discussion is prompting action among progressive regulators. This 89-page report analyzes the five states that are paving the path for the utility of the future, whether driven by the opportunity that grid-edge technologies can offer or by technological, financial, and political pressure.
With proceedings underway in leading states such as California, New York and Hawaii, this report is able to identify key issues, the position of key stakeholders, and speculate on what business opportunities may be created for grid-edge companies through these proceedings. For companies outside of the dockets, this report can be viewed as a field guide with which to identify the most appropriate proceedings to track and engage in.
