Public power utilities are working with cutting-edge energy storage innovators to dispel the notion that a growing reliance upon distributed energy resources (DER) will lead to the much talked about utility death spiral. A number of projects in New York and other geographies are testing the waters for creative partnerships between consumers/prosumers, utilities, and private sector vendors. Companies such as Sunverge and PowerStream, Inc. are laying down the groundwork for new DER business models that highlight how advanced batteries are helping to create the grid of the future.
In this webinar, Peter Asmus, principal research analyst at Guidehouse Insights, Ken Munson, CEO of Sunverge Energy, and Neetika Sathe, vice president of Corporate Development at PowerStream, explore various efforts to monetize value streams provided by both utilities and third parties. They also showcase projects that span aggregation and optimization technologies, such as nanogrids, microgrids, and virtual power plants (VPPs).
