TOPIC:  Distributed Energy Resources: Managing the Risk
8:30 a.m. - Noon
Recommended CEUs .3 / PDHs 3.25 / CPEs 3.8, Specialized Knowledge

Advances in customer-sited distributed energy resources (DER) including energy storage can alter how utilities reliably meet load requirements while adequately recovering costs, presenting risks and impacts across several functions of public power utilities. As DER adoption accelerates, utilities will need to adopt new methods to manage impacts and customer relationships that arise from the increased use of DERs. Walk through public power case studies concerning DER risk mitigation to demonstrate where “business as usual” analytical methods can be improved identifying and managing DER impacts and risk across several functions of the utility.
