Innovation and Disruption at the Grid's Edge : How distributed energy resources are disrupting the utility business model Paperback / softback

Edited by Fereidoon P. (President, Menlo Energy Economics, San Francisco, CA, USA) Sioshansi

Description

Innovation and Disruption at the Grid's Edge examines the viable developments in peer-to-peer transactions enabled by open platforms on the grid's edge.

With consumers and prosumers using more electronic platforms to trade surplus electricity from rooftop solar panels, share a storage battery, or use smart gadgets that manage load and self-generation, the grid's edge is becoming crowded. The book examines the growing number of consumers engaging in self-generation and storage, and analyzes the underlying causes and drivers of change, as well as the implications of how the utility sector-particularly the distribution network-should/could be regulated.

The book also explores how tariffs are set and revenues are collected to cover both fixed and variable costs in a sustainable way.

This reference is useful for anyone interested in the areas of energy generation and regulation, especially stakeholders engaged in the generation, transmission, and distribution of power.
