Distributed Energy Poised for ‘Explosive Growth’ on the US Grid

Distributed energy resources are poised for “explosive growth” across the United States over the next five years. U.S. utilities “need to change, and are slowly changing,” how they plan, operate and maintain their distribution grids to adapt.
That’s how Ben Kellison, grid edge director at GTM Research, described the key challenges facing the country’s utilities at this week’s Grid Edge Innovation Summit.
GTM Research has been tracking the rapid growth of rooftop solar, small-scale combined...
