Distributed energy resource projects are exponentially growing in numbers and changing the landscape of power generation everywhere. This expansion, however, doesn’t mean it’s easy or quick to resolve the financing and development challenges of the DER and microgrid projects.
The decentralization of the grid via on-site power and distributed technologies needs money to maintain momentum, and that financier wants to gain confidence in the value streams provided by DERs and microgrids. Demand response, virtual power plant (VPP) and grid resiliency benefits are increasing, and yet interconnection delays and worries over payback can impede the momentum.
Knowledge is power, and understanding how to evaluate site-specific performance data and energy market options to create cost projections and insights can help get projects greenlighted.
Join the virtual power plant experts at CPower next week as they highlight value streams and market details which strengthen project development of DERs and microgrids by customers including those in the commercial and industrial sectors. Power resiliency and sustainability are the twin goals for these customers.
“How to Make Projects Pencil and Increase Returns with DER Optimization” will be the free, one-hour webinar happening 11 a.m. ET on Thursday, Nov. 9. The event is sponsored by CPower and hosted by both EnergyTech and Microgrid Knowledge.
The three panelists with deeply experienced DER and microgrid market insights include Millie Knowlton, director of strategic planning and business development, at CPower. She will be joined by Rob Windle, CPower vice president for strategic planning and business development; and Brad Widdup, director of distributed generation at CPower.
Various market forecasts have predicted that revenue from global microgrid projects and DERs will more than double by the end of the decade. FERC Order 2222 and the widening of participants in demand response, VPP and distributed energy aggregation also will accelerate the financial power of such projects.
Learn how to make the best business case possible by inspiring and enlightening investors within the expanding DER front. Join us at EnergyTech and Microgrid Knowledge for this webinar sponsored and guided by CPower. Registration is free and webinar will be live and then on-demand for months afterward.
CPower is a nationwide DER monetization and VPP provider. It manages and deploys 6.3 GW of DER capacity from its customers at 20,000 sites across the U.S.
Microgrid Knowledge covers all things microgrid from design to construction to operations. EnergyTech explores the news about the C&I Energy Transition from the customer perspective. From transportation electrification to on-site renewables and energy efficiency, there are many paths to net zero, so coverage reflects a variety of generation and efficiency technologies.
