Understanding distributed energy resources (DERs) is critical to succeeding in an ever-changing energy sector, racing towards a carbon-free future. If you find yourself turning to search engines more often than you would like or you need to know how DERs fit into the modern energy market, join SEPA for a small online class. In the first of three parts, you’ll discover what current system conditions make DERs necessary, why they are increasingly important, and how they function in the marketplace.
