Demand response (DR) has participated in wholesale electricity markets for close to 2 decades. Today, market trends are pushing DR to become a more operational-based resource. Intermittent renewable resources like solar and wind that require more flexible and fast-responding services are replacing the large centralized coal and nuclear plants that are retiring. DR can provide those services, but this trend opens the market to other types of distributed energy resources (DER) that can also respond in a flexible and quick manner.

Customers often use DER such as storage, distributed generation, and EVs to meet internal energy and transportation needs without considering how to coordinate resources or determine the kind of value they can provide back to the grid. This webinar will explain the benefits that DER can earn by participating in DR markets and provide case studies of successful DER market integration with CPower and Scale Microgrid Solutions.
