Beyond the Meter: Addressing the Locational Valuation Challenge for Distributed Energy Resources

Download Report

Written in partnership with Nexant and part of SEPA’s Beyond the Meter series, this report addresses the growing need to define a common metric for assessing the distribution capacity deferral value provided by DERs so their individual values can be stacked and combined.

The paper uses real world utility investments as a foundation for proposing a methodology to calculate locational capacity value.
