Distributed solar. Energy storage. Prime power. Small-scale combined heat and power (CHP). Electric vehicles. These distributed energy resources (DER) are transforming and disrupting the traditional energy market.
While these technologies aren’t new, their uses are evolving to fit specific customer needs. As a utility, institutional or facility manager, or commercial and industrial operator, you’re likely confronting the challenges that come with these changes.
Your plans, investments, operations and maintenance all require new approaches. POWER can help.
