Upcoming Webinar: Comparing the Abilities of Energy Storage, PV, and Other Distributed Energy Resources to Provide Grid Services, Monday, March 13, 3:00pm-4:30pm ET

The grid is undergoing a transformation leading to greater utilization of Distributed Energy Resources (DER). DER devices include batteries, PV, and even aggregated hot water heaters or building lighting systems. At the core of this transformation are the services that these DER can provide to the grid. Presently each device type is siloed into its [...]
