由於電力基礎設施、市場設計，及經營模式的複雜且廣泛的被迫改變的分散式能源資源及客戶能源管理解決方案的劇增，電力產業立於戲劇性變化的入口。分散式發電、微電網、儲能及需求反應客戶導入的擴大，對公共事業、技術供應商、第三方能源服務供應商及客戶來說，展現出產生永續的、數位、雙向性的、可信賴的，及有效率的電力網的空前機會。這個活動在傳統穩定充分受理解的領域境界展開。Greentech Media稱這個領域為Grid Edge。
New technologies and consumer demand for cleaner energy are rapidly transforming the power sector, most notably in the proliferation of distributed energy resources (DER) like solar PV, demand response, and energy storage. This DER growth is challenging traditional business models that are predicated on ever-growing demand for electricity and need for capital investments in centralized technologies.
The need for a "utility of the future" is at the forefront of conversations within and outside of utilities, with numerous conferences, reports, consulting pitches, and collaboratives addressing the theme. The discussion is prompting action among progressive regulators. This 89-page report analyzes the five states that are paving the path for the utility of the future, whether driven by the opportunity that grid-edge technologies can offer or by technological, financial, and political pressure.
With proceedings underway in leading states such as California, New York and Hawaii, this report is able to identify key issues, the position of key stakeholders, and speculate on what business opportunities may be created for grid-edge companies through these proceedings. For companies outside of the dockets, this report can be viewed as a field guide with which to identify the most appropriate proceedings to track and engage in.
