Event Details

CEE's Director of Planning and Engagement, Jenny Edwards, joins the 2020 Midwest Solar Expo, speaking on the panel "Distributed Energy Resources: Grid Assets or Constraints?". 

Distributed energy resources (including rooftop PV, storage, flexible load and community solar) are key ingredients in the transition to a carbon-free grid. But as penetrations of distributed energy resources grow across the Midwest, utility planners, regulators, developers and other stakeholders must grapple with the impacts – both positive and negative – of those resources on the grid. This panel will explore the role that distributed energy resources can play on a modern grid, and identify the stepping stones – technical, regulatory, and business model - on our path to that future.
