SEPA Sponsors Webinar on DERs’ Multiple Revenue Streams

Efficient, flexible technologies will be needed to meet 100-percent renewable targets

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to President Donald Trump's decision to take the United States out of the Paris climate accord, cities, states and corporations across the country have voiced their commitment to the agreement and to clean energy targets, in some cases as high as 100 percent.

But what does a 100-percent renewable energy target actually mean?
A large part of that 100-percent goal -- which journalists will want to explain to their readers -- will be the development and deployment of highly flexible, highly efficient distributed energy resources (DERs) that can provide benefits for customers and the grid.
Such technologies will be the focus on an upcoming webinar organized by the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) on "Stacking DER Values," 11 a.m. PST/2 p.m. EST, June 15, The webinar also offers a preview of some of the themes to be covered at SEPA's Grid Evolution Summit: A National Town Meeting, July 25-27 in Washington, D.C.
The webinar will feature two speakers scheduled to appear at the summit: Bud Vos, CEO of Enbala, and Scott Baker, Senior Business Solutions Analyst at PJM Interconnection.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
