BREAKOUT PANEL: Transactive Control and Distributed Energy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Distributed generation, storage, and responsive demand represent a growing and largely uncoordinated set of distributed energy resources (DERs) that can be harnessed to address growing issues with higher penetrations of renewable resources, electric vehicles, and climate change.  Transactive energy represents a distributed decision-making technique to effectively and reliably coordinate DERs at scale.  New York, California, Hawaii and others are driving change toward transactive approaches.  Participate in a discussion of early experience with transactive energy and the characteristics needed for successful DER integration.
