Coordinating DERs used as non-wires alternatives (NWAs)

The costs, capabilities, and visibility of distributed energy resources (DERs) are fast improving. So how do we prepare for a future when these resources can participate in both distribution- and transmission-level markets?

In Non-Wires Alternatives Using Energy and Capacity Markets, you’ll get insights into:

  • Why enabling DERs to compete on a more level playing field with traditional generation and network infrastructure has become a priority for the sector
  • The importance of robust market and operational processes between a transmission system operator and distribution system operators, and why these are critical to unlocking the value of DERs as NWAs
  • How using energy and capacity markets to secure DER services could reduce system costs, while supporting reliability, resource adequacy and market efficiency
