Capturing More Value from Combinations of PV and Other Distributed Energy Resources

By John Shenot, Carl Linvill, Max Dupuy, Donna Brutkoski

Much has been written about the value of solar photovoltaic generation, but less about the value of some of the other distributed energy resources — other forms of distributed generation, energy storage, electric vehicles, demand response, and energy efficiency — or how these resources can be combined. This paper considers the types of values (or “value st...

Capturing More Value from Distributed Resource Combinations

Much has been written about the value of solar photovoltaic (PV) generation, but PV systems are limited in the services and value streams they can provide. When PV is combined with other distributed energy resources, however, new opportunities for synergy arise. These opportunities can make the total value of combining PV with another distributed resource...
