CEER Status Review Report on Regulatory Frameworks for Innovation in Electricity Transmission Infrastructure

This document presents a progress report on regulatory frameworks for innovation in electricity infrastructure. It follows up on the conclusions of the Energy Infrastructure Forum 2019.

Water and Wastewater Systems as Potential Distributed Energy Resources for California - High-level Feasibility Assessment

Water systems in California are a major electricity user, and electricity costs represent a significant portion of water utilities’ operating costs. Water and wastewater utilities have the capacity to shift demand in response to grid needs or price signals, and can generate power through biogas, hydropower, or onsite renewable energy systems like solar panels and wind turbines. This report points to some of the most promising opportunity areas for water and wastewater utilities to participate as distributed energy resources (DERs) while also carefully laying out practical considerations.

DC Lighting and Building Microgrids: Opportunities and Recommendations

Supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) conducted research to characterize the current state of DC lighting and building microgrid market and technologies. This research included extensive literature reviews, interviews of 28 subject matter experts and manufacturers, and a formal Request for Information (RFI) to DC lighting and microgrid controller manufacturers.

Energy in the UK

Energy in the UK 2020 illustrates the sector’s huge contribution to both the UK economy and reducing emissions – and the next steps needed as part of the energy transition. While looking primarily at 2019, the publication also covers some of this year’s events, such as the sector’s response to COVID-19 and moves to support customers along with the new low carbon generation records that have been set in recent months.

Hawaiian Electric Companies Demand Response Tool


This document introduces the Hawaiian Electric Companies Demand Response Tool, which was developed at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

MODERN DISTRIBUTION GRID (DSPx) Volume I: Objective Driven Functionality

The Modern Distribution Grid taxonomy framework provides a line of sight between the sponsoring regulatory commissions’ policy objectives, desired attributes of a modern grid platform employing the grid architecture methodology described in this volume, functional requirements, and ultimately the technology needed. The taxonomy in this report provides a line-of-sight from objectives and capabilities to the detailed business functions and related elements, which are illustrated in Appendix A.

Distributed System Implementation Plan

Con Edison is excited to present its third distributed system implementation plan (“DSIP”) to increase customer choice and promote a sustainable and clean energy future.  

Power-to-Gas System Valuation – Final Report

To provide a framework for evaluating the technical and financial benefits of a power-to-gas (P2G) system deployed in the Holyoke Gas and Electric (HG&E) system, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory modified its energy storage valuation tools to run a one-year simulation of P2G operations.

MODERN DISTRIBUTION GRID (DSPx) Volume II: Advanced Technology Maturity Assessment

This volume provides an overview of key technologies that will be necessary for the operation of the modern distribution grid to ensure reliable, safe operation while enabling customer choice and increasing integration of DER. Regulators and industry can use This volume to identify distinct technology categories, systems, analytics, and tools as they embark on grid modernization and
DER integration activities within their jurisdictions.
