Should Renewables and Distributed Energy Resources Be In Your 2016 Energy Strategy?

Ian Bowman

Leading companies have long been eager to include higher levels of renewable and distributed energy resources—such as solar, battery storage and automated demand management controls—to improve their company’s environmental profile. However, there are several key considerations, not least of which is the financial benefit. Fortunately, an increasingly broad set of renewable opportunities are available – both onsite and offsite—that compete cost-effectively with traditional grid delivery.

At our upcoming Q4 Energy Outlook Webinar, we’re going to be “shining the light” on solar as a hotspot of emerging growth.

Is it time to integrate solar, or other DERs, into your energy management game plan? We’ll be reviewing 5 key considerations for developing a renewable energy procurement strategy:

  1. Why a company might choose different approaches to solar: Self-supply (e.g., onsite rooftop solar) versus solar host versus shared solar anchor? Or a mix of all of the above?
  2. Which locations are financially viable?
  3. As the cost of technology drops, so do early incentives and special grid rates. So is there an optimal time to buy?
  4. How much budget certainty do you desire – 3 years, 10 years, 20 years?
  5. How will renewable energy interact with deregulated supply and regulated tariffs as grid conditions change?

Join us for a discussion of the above as well as a review of current energy market conditions and intelligence at the complimentary Q4 Energy Outlook Webinar: Integrating Distributed Energy Resources into Your Plan, hosted by Ian Bowman, director of product management and Jonathan Lee, senior energy market intelligence manager. Join us on Wednesday, December 2 at 11:00 am PDT/2:00 pm EST for a 45-minute discussion, followed by a live Q&A session.
