Accelerating DG Rollout: Framework in the Northeast

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013, 9:30am - 12:00pm EDT / Streamed Panel Discussion: 7:00am - 8:30am PDT / 10:00pm - 11:30pm EDT / 16:00 - 17:30 (Paris-Brussels)

Meeting in New York

 

The top three benefits of distributed generation, according to an IEEE and ZPRYME survey in the fall of 2012, are to add supply as needed, reduce infrastructure costs, and improve overall grid reliability[1].. With these systems becoming more and more popular in residential, commercial, utility, and commercial settings, there is growing market opportunity for technology providers. In order for these markets to expand, however, there needs to be end-user interest to drive favorable policies that will help bring down prices. By increasing stakeholder interest in these systems, new revenue streams can be opened, allowing power to be sold not only unidirectionally. The DG market can therefore become a unique venue for multi-player participation.

 
In the Tri-State area and greater Northeast in the United States, distributed generation markets have already taken prominent roles in energy infrastructure development. Many municipalities and regions have extensive plans to increase use of solar and wind distributed resources in the coming years. New York City’s PlaNYC, for example, aims to install 800 MW of customer-owned distributed generation assets throughout the city. Integrating those systems with the grid is essential for achieving these goals, and will aid in grid modernization and reliability. Addressing these issues and more (e.g. technology, policy support) will be the subject of this roundtable’s discussion.
  • How has the process of adding DG assets to the grid changed in recent years?
  • What is the regional policy landscape for DG asset deployment?
  • Which markets (residential, commercial, industrial, utility) are best for DG integration in the northeast US? Which are worst?
  • What are the leading DG technologies? What technologies have been deployed the most in the northeast? Which technologies are expected to be deployed the most?
  • How are DG systems contributing to GHG emission reductions targets?
  • Is an urban setting the right location for DG assets?
  • How does DG increase grid reliability? Resiliency?
