Current and anticipated growth of distributed energy resources (DERs) and the introduction of aggregated DERs into wholesale markets resulting from FERC Order 2222 are fundamentally changing the way the grid is planned and operated. Policymakers at State Energy Offices and regulators at public utility commissions increasingly need to evaluate, consider, and establish the rules and requirements as well as enabling policies and programs to bring these resources online safely and fairly to provide retail and wholesale services. Through the NASEO-NARUC DER Integration and Compensation Initiative, NASEO and the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) are providing a forum for the development of state-led pathways toward a more resilient, efficient, and affordable grid. The Initiative will provide information, tools, access to experts, and peer sharing opportunities that assist members with FERC Order 2222 implementation in RTO/ISO regions and state oversight of transmission-distribution-customer (TDC) coordination outside of RTO/ISO regions.
The NASEO-NARUC DER Integration and Compensation Initiative 2023-24 is designed around three sequential modules:
- Module 1: The modern landscape, best practices & lessons from what’s being done today
- Module 2: Hot topics, collectively explore cutting-edge applications
- Module 3: Deep dive, advancing a pressing topic through intentional collaboration
Module 1 begins with three webinars in December 2023 and January 2024. Please register below.
