In August, Energy Central is diving into how distributed energy resources (DERs) are contributing to the evolving makeup of the utility structure. Our Grid Professionals, Energy Efficiency, and Load Management Communities are eager to hear from you. We're looking for thought leadership articles from professionals working with DERs who can address both the challenges and opportunities arising as DERs become more commonplace across the grid. We invite you to share your knowledge, expertise, and experience in building and integrating distributed energy resources! A special issue newsletter dedicated to this topic will be distributed on August 29th.
We want to hear from you! Are you working on DER strategies or overcoming technical challenges? Please use this issue as an opportunity to share your knowledge so others can benefit from lessons learned on your projects. We want to hear about your successes, your challenges, and your outlook for the future of DERs.
