9780128002407: Distributed Generation and its Implications for the Utility Industry

Distributed Generation and its Implications for the Utility Industry examines the current state of the electric supply industry; the upstream and downstream of the meter; the various technological, business, and regulatory strategies; and case studies that look at a number of projects that put new models into practice.

A number of powerful trends are beginning to affect the fundamentals of the electric utility business as we know it. Recent developments have led to a fundamental re-thinking of the electric supply industry and its traditional method of measuring consumption on a volumetric basis. These developments include decreasing electricity demand growth; the rising cost of fossil fuels and its impact on electricity costs; investment in energy efficiency; increasing numbers of prosumers who generate for some or all of their own needs; and market reforms.

This book examines the implications of these trends in chapters focusing on distributed and decentralized generation, transactive energy, the role of electric vehicles, any much more.

  • Discusses the technological, business, and policy trends most impacting the electric utility sector
  • Provides an assessment of how fast and how soon distributed energy resources may make an impact on utility sales/revenues
  • Explores, through a series of international case studies, the implementation of strategies that may help retain the viability of the utility industry
  • Features contributions from a number of scholars, academics, experts and practitioners from different parts of the world focused on examining the future of the electric supply industry

Review:

"For readers of this journal this book contains some very valuable articles summarizing recent developments...At the end asking the question how relevant the changes in the direction of distributed generation are, the answer is not unambiguous."--Energy Research & Social Science, January 28, 2015
