Interests: energy economics; integration of renewable resources and distributed energy resources in the electricity sector; smart grids and regulation of the electricity and gas sectors
The electric power sector is poised for transformative changes. Improvements in the cost and performance of a range of distributed energy generation (DG) technologies and the potential for breakthroughs in distributed energy storage (DS) are creating new options for on-site power generation and storage, driving increasing adoption and impacting utility distribution system operations. In addition, changing uses and use patterns for electricity—from plug-in electric vehicles (EVs) to demand response (DR)—are altering demands on the electric power system. Finally, the infusion of new information and communications technology (ICT) into the electric system and its markets is enabling the collection of immense volumes of data on power sector operations and use; unprecedented control of generation, networks, and loads; and new opportunities for the delivery of energy services.
In this Special Issue of Energies, research papers on topics related to the integration of distributed energy resources (DG, DS, EV, and DR) are welcome. From technologies to business models and software tools to evaluate systemwide, both operation and planning impacts of all aforementioned distributed resources will be well received. The focus of this Special Issue is how the combination of novel distributed resources with the nature and penetration of these business models heavily influenced by policy and regulation will shape the utilities of the future.
