Navigating the DER Revolution: A Playbook to Guide Grid Modernization and FERC 2222 Compliance

The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that there will be in excess of $110 billion in DERs deployed nationwide by 2025, not including the billions in infrastructure spending that will also be required to integrate distributed resources with the grid.

Solar has topped 120 GW installed capacity in the U.S., of which 45 percent is behind-the-meter.

There are currently 10 million electric vehicles (EVs) on the road today, with an expected 145 million on the road by 2030.

At the same time, FERC Order 2222 is becoming a reality for state regulatory agencies, independent system operators (ISOs) and regional transmission organizations (RTOs), forcing them to develop plans to incorporate DERs into wholesale energy markets.

This Bidgely Playbook provides important steps for energy providers to successfully navigate — and more importantly benefit from — the DER revolution, including the following steps:

  • Step 1: Locate and Analyze DERs on your grid: Penetration, Location, Capacity, Activity
  • Step 2: Get in Front of Wholesale Energy Markets Opening to DERs
  • Step 3: Update Business Models to Realign Resource Planning
