Why You Should Attend

The National Forum on DER Integration & Innovation

DERs can provide positive net value to the grid such as avoided infrastructure investments, improved resilience and happier customers. However, integration of these resources will require a new planning and operational paradigm with innovative technologies and business models.

This premier marcus evans forum will address key questions on how best to define the value of the distribution network and related operational structure for high-DER penetration and how to structure the regulatory framework and rules to enable that future.

Key Topics

  • Measure Achievable Gains of When and Where to place DERs on the Grid to Achieve Economic Profitability with TVA
  • Connect Energy Storage Deployment to Capitalize on Solar and Wind Markets with Lodestar Energy
  • Develop Local and Targeted In-Front-of-the-Meter (IFOM) and Behind-the-Meter (BTM) DER Solutions to Maximize the Efficiency in Deployment of New Assets onto the Distribution Grid with SCE
