Non-wire alternatives as real-world solutions: How DERs impact transmission planning and reliability

4:15-5:00 PM PST

As California adds more Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) to the grid, transmission planners must account for extra load. How can we spot issues on the distribution grid before they cause problems at the transmission level? This session will discuss reliability reform on both sides of the meter, FERC Order 2222, and explore how DERs can postpone or forgo transmission development.
