Recently the North American Electric Reliability Corporation, working in tandem with the Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center, released its summary of Lessons Learned from its fifth biennial electrical power grid and emergency response exercise, GridEx V.
The trends with the biggest impact that we are seeing all revolve around the design of module frames. There are a number of module manufacturers who have reduced the length of the flange found on the underside of a typical module frame.
People have realized that they can take control of their energy in lots of other ways. With their smart devices and a little bit of planning, consumers can now make money on their energy use, while simultaneously keeping the grid stable.

Integration between solar and wind asset management software and monitoring software lets owners and operators automatically retrieve weather and production information, providing an up-to-date overview of the status of their portfolio.
Leonard Hyman & William Tilles for OilPrice.com: By 2030, solar-plus-storage could threaten the economic relevance of their distribution grids by making less necessary the connection with the local electric utility.
Companies selling PV systems are concerned that if utilities add a set fee for solar customers to remain connected to the grid to take in electricity at times when the sun isnt shining, or if utilities decrease the retail credit for the times when customers send their excess generation back to the grid, people will be less likely to put panels on their roofs.
