Dialogue and Strategy Session on Distributed Energy Resources and Microgrids to Support Reliability and Resiliency in Wholesale Electricity Markets

12.13.17

This dialogue is aimed at bringing together companies, associations, NGOs and others interested in ensuring that clean distributed energy resources—distributed solar, demand response, energy storage and microgrids–are able to compete on a level playing field with other energy technologies. This includes ensuring that DER technologies are appropriately valued, as applicable, in wholesale electric markets. We also seek to understand model state policies that aim to promote DER and how these policies align with wholesale power markets. A key outcome of the meeting will be to ensure that advocates for DER technologies are well positioned to engage future FERC deliberations related to the FERC NOPR on grid reliability and resilience pricing as well as notable policies raised in other recent FERC dockets and the DOE budget proposal.

Highlights will include:
