Quantifying the Power of Distributed Energy Resources

The changing landscape of energy technologies and business opportunities are fundamentally altering how the electric grid operates. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is working with industry to improve understanding of the operational and economic implications of relying on the widespread deployment and integration of distributed resources and non-utility services providers, and translating this knowledge to a Transactive Energy (TE) context to accelerate new infrastructure investment. Topics to be covered include DER integration, transactive energy, and improved reliability.

Join us for a free workshop to explore these issues on December 6 at the Downtown Conference Center, 157 William St, New York, NY 10038. And please register ahead of time to let us know you’re coming (see link to right). 

Who Should Attend:

  • Technology providers with new energy business models
  • Market operators and participants
  • Utilities and energy service providers
  • Industry Trade Associations and Institutes
  • Simulation experts
  • Federal and Local Government

Value of Attending:

  • Network with your peers to discuss the business opportunities in a transactive future
  • Engage with industry experts enabling innovations, technologies and transactive business models that could drive future grid operations and infrastructure investments
  • Share perspectives on new revenue opportunities and business structures for distributed energy resource (DER) service models
  • Engage with NIST’s TE Challenge team to explore how simulation can advance TE understanding and accelerate implementation
  • Engage with NY REV government and industry stakeholders

Discussion topics

  • What are the promising grid services and business models as NY REV develops?
  • How do we capture the value of these services? How can we do that better?
  • Modeling and simulation improvements needed to advance DER business models
  • How to compare different transactive strategies for DER integration, and identifying gaps in modeling and simulation capabilities
