Transmission Executive Forum: Panel Discussion

Modeling and Planning Issues with Distributed Energy Resources (DERs)

In particular, the panel will seek to address current modeling and analytic tools for the distributed energy grid, responses from planners in regions with high levels of rooftop solar and other DERs, the potential for stranded transmission investments, and the effects of two-way flows on distribution feeders and their impacts on transmission.
