Read a follow up article written by Kay Mann entitled, Distributed Generation, Microgrids and Non-Transmission Alternatives.
Following up on E2Tech's successful forum on the needs of and issues with the regional electricity grid - the "macrogrid" - E2Tech is pleased to present a discussion of distributed generation (DG) and "microgrids" in Maine. What resources are available to fuel these systems? What T&D rate structure changes will support grid investment and reflect long-term benefits of locating DG in areas of reliability concerns? Benefits may include enhanced cyber-security, increased renewable sources of electricity like wind and solar power, and even integration of electric vehicles onto the grid. This forum offers an opportunity for collaboration among ISO-NE, state policymakers and regulators, energy companies, and others on operational, planning, and market implications of these non-transmission alternatives.
