Pacific Gas and Electric Company's Excess Supply Demand Response Program

5/23/2019
More
The Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) Excess Supply Demand Response program (XSP) demonstrates capabilities of demand-side resources to consume or decrease load as a service to the grid to address intermittency due to oversupply of renewables generation as distributed generation accelerates. The California PUC Load Shift Working Group noted in 2018 that the XSP was the only existing load shifting participation model. Designed to capture the full value of flexible resources to the grid...

Future of Distributed Energy Resources Compendium

5/4/2019
More
A new compendium published by PLMA details eight industry initiatives where leading utilities are partnering with their customers and allies to demonstrate the path to a more integrated approach to distributed energy resources. Where do today's load management activities (including demand response, energy efficiency, and renewable energy programs fit in a distributed energy resource future of non-wires alternatives, energy storage, and more?

Southern California Edison's Distributed Energy Storage Virtual Power Plant Project

4/16/2019
More
Discover key considerations from two leading non-wires-alternatives (NWA) projects. This 85 MW project active since December 2016 is perhaps the most sophisticated DER-provided capacity and NWA project in North America. It incorporates demand response with battery storage available for up to 4 hours when dispatched in West Los Angeles Basin, including parts of Orange and Los Angeles Counties, in California. It was the first large-scale test of customer-sited resources for SCE and its size...

National Grid's Non-Wires Alternative Projects

4/16/2019
More
Discover key considerations from two leading non-wires-alternatives (NWA) projects. The Tiverton Project helped defer the need for traditional electric grid infrastructure upgrades. This discussion will share insight regarding customer-driven load curtailment program focused on automated demand response (DR) utilizing a wide variety of DR and energy efficiency resources. The Old Forge project is focused on solving distribution grid constraints and providing grid resilience solutions with a...
