Scaling distributed energy resources to benefit everyone

June 28, 2018

For Hawai‘i to achieve its 100% clean energy goal, it cannot rely solely on grid-scale projects, making Distributed Energy Resources and the end-user an important piece of the puzzle. The University of Hawai‘i Community Colleges have launched a comprehensive energy efficiency, renewable energy, and storage project - the largest behind the meter PV + storage project in Hawai‘i.  This panel will dive into the unique financial and technical components of this innovative project – from the enabling technologies to the value stacking of benefits – and share some of the important lessons learned and considerations.  Speakers will also discuss how the operation of these systems could evolve into participation in utility demand side grid services programs.
