The state of New York released an order to implement an Integrated Energy Data Resource (IEDR) that will create aa central, independent platform for access to customer and system data, opening the doors for a more democratized approach to distributed energy resource development to benefit energy customers and electric grid alike.
As evidenced by the growing adoption of customer-sited solutions and microgrids, Standby Charges and Departing Load Charges are not insurmountable barriers. However, policy hinderances slow the full potential of microgrids being realized.
Widespread zero-emission vehicle adoption and fleet electrification is a critical piece of the global energy transition
Forward-looking organizations are thinking about energy as a key factor in their market competitiveness and seeking solutions to overcome the capital and risk barriers that come with energy infrastructure upgrades. 
Transportation electrification has a new option in the Energy as a Service solution, with several nuanced benefits and outcomes outside of sustainable, resilient power.
With the emergence of new private financing vehicles that can be coupled with federal and state grants and incentives, microgrids are an increasingly economically viable solution proven to deliver infrastructure wins nationwide.
With already constrained budgets, it’s important to arm school districts with the insight they need to make smart and strategic electrification investments.
