An in-depth look into today’s non-wires alternatives (NWA) projects

In today’s electricity market, non-wires alternatives are capturing public attention and inspiring decision-makers to explore the grid benefits and potential cost savings resulting from integrating new distributed technologies in place of new infrastructure upgrades. As interest grows, industry practitioners are seeking out more information and lessons learned from past and existing NWA projects. To help shed light on a broad set of NWA projects in the U.S., E4TheFuture, PLMA (Peak Load Management Alliance), and SEPA jointly selected 10 NWA case studies and have distilled insights into this report.

What’s in the report:

  • Highlights of 10 NWA case studies and a summary of their key attributes (project size, technologies, key drivers, and grid challenges faced).
  • Policy review of the state of non-wires alternatives.
    Examples of innovative energy solutions to meet today’s grid challenges
  • Key insights and challenges from the planning, sourcing, and implementation phases
  • Full-length NWA case studies with additional resources in the Appendix
