Connected Devices:
Building a DER Portfolio through Business Case Modeling

DATE / TIME: Thursday, April 15, 12:30 to 1:30 pm ET

Hosted by the Connected Devices Interest Group

Connected Devices

One hundred percent clean energy goals are emerging all across the country and utilities must proactively plan how to drive and support this transformation. To achieve these goals, a combination of utility-scale and distributed energy resources are needed. Puget Sound Energy seeks to design and evaluate DER concepts that will help meet these goals while providing both grid and customer benefits.

To do this, models will need to assess costs and benefits to both customers and the utility. By identifying and developing concepts that offer shared value to both utility and customer, utilities can meet customer requests for DER products and achieve clean energy goals in a more cost-effective manner.

Puget Sound Energy and West Monroe Partners will discuss the DER use-case stacking model they’ve developed to create a portfolio of DER concepts and the lessons they've learned along the way.
