This white paper outlines five case studies of participation in both retail and wholesale markets by a range of distributed energy resources (DERs), exploring business models in use across the country today, and explaining how market rules have limited opportunities for participation. 

The case studies represent a range of different technologies and are drawn from different RTOs/ISOs, including aggregated energy storage facilities in California, a 13-facility solar-plus-storage portfolio operating in New York City, aggregated solar and storage facilities across New England, aggregated electric vehicle charging infrastructure in California, and a microgrid in New York.

The report points to the benefits of expanding such opportunities, and explains the role of federal, regional, and state regulators in facilitating greater DER integration into wholesale markets.
