DERs in the New Energy Economy

Moderated by Joe Childs of Eaton,
and featuring Peter Kelly-Detwiler of NorthBridge Energy Partners,
Rick Kornfeld of Kitu Systems, Bob Manning of Avangrid, Tony Johnson of SCE,
and Ross Malme of Bowen Capital Advisors

Thursday, March 18, 2021 | 12:30 to 1:30 pm ET

Woods Mackenzie estimates the U.S. could have up to 380GW of DERs connected to the grid as soon as 2025. This represents tens of millions of DERs entering the ecosystem across many DER asset classes including EV-to-grid and grid-to-EV charging and interconnection, smart solar inverters, energy storage, microgrids, and many other intelligent devices.

Together, these will create potentially billions of DER-to-grid transactions. One likely result will be the need for a new transaction infrastructure. Join our moderator, PLMA Secretary Joe Childs of Eaton, PLMA's Global Load Management Co-Chair Ross Malme, and our special guest speakers to explore what this infrastructure might be, its benefits, and challenges.
