Brattle Principal Ahmad Faruqui will present at Stratton Report’s event, “Managing DERs: The Evolving Toolkit for DG, DR, ESS, VPP & More,” taking place June 6-8, 2017 in San Diego, CA.
The event will provide a systematic overview of the issues and proposed solutions for the extremely complex evolution of the new electric grid. Utility thought leaders will discuss how they are preparing for a more challenging, customer-centric grid, and will provide real-world case studies in controlling aggregated distributed energy resource (DER) assets.
Dr. Faruqui will present during the workshop “Valuing DERs and Rate Design for High DER Systems.” Panelist will discuss a variety of tariffs that would facilitate distribution systems with high DER penetration, including fixed charges, demand charges, and dynamics pricing tariffs. Additional topics of discussion will include how to conduct pilot programs to test various rate structures, regulatory perspectives on DER-facilitating rates, and ways to handle customer transitions to new rate structures.
