|Driving Improved DER Financing with New Software Platform Capabilities|
|Published: September 18, 2018||Content info: 17 Pages; 10 Tables, Charts & Figures||
The global electric power industry is facing a fundamental shift from centralized generation toward a mix of distributed energy resources (DER) and smart grid solutions known as the Energy Cloud. Commercial and industrial (C&I) energy users will increasingly seek to deploy these new DER solutions to reduce energy use and spend without CAPEX or a negative impact on their day-to-day operations.
Navigant Research anticipates the continued growth of DER project finance asset classes will be required to support the need for the deployment of customer-sited DER at C&I facilities without CAPEX. Further, intelligent building and DER software platforms will need to demonstrate improved integrated analytics, operational control, and optimization capabilities for customer-sited DER. These capabilities will become key to meeting the DER financing needs of C&I energy users, DER financiers, DER solutions providers, project developers, utilities, energy service providers, and energy suppliers.
This Navigant Research report examines how new DER solutions can be financed to avoid CAPEX and meet the sustainability and operational efficiency needs of C&I energy users. The study explores trends related to C&I utility customers seeking broader energy savings via innovative DER financing. It also examines the integrated DER software platform capabilities required to meet stakeholder needs and efforts to develop and drive these capabilities, as well as improved DER financing.
