Description (excerpt):

Distributed energy resources (DERs)—generation, storage, electric vehicles, and responsive load connected to the distribution system—can provide a range of economic, reliability, and security benefits to electricity systems. Unlocking these benefits, however, requires concerted and coordinated action among electricity regulators, electric distribution companies, bulk power system operators, retailers and other service providers, customers, and equipment manufacturers. ESIG’s report, Lessons Learned for the U.S. Context: An Assessment of UK and Australian Open Networks Initiatives, provides an assessment of recent DER integration initiatives in the UK and Australia, distilling insights that would be instructive for the development of a national initiative around DER integration in the United States.
