Virtual power plants are here. What's next for the Northeast?
Virtual Power Plant (VPP) is a broad term encompassing the full range of distributed energy resources (DERs) and the ways they can help the grid. Entrepreneurs, investors, and policymakers are showing renewed focus on increasing the impact of VPPs for the US energy transition and an aging grid. This panel will define a VPP in its multiple forms, and discuss how that role is evolving with technology and policy. Panelists will also share experiences developing and managing VPPs, and identify key barriers and solutions to more rapid VPP deployment.
