Title: Did You Know – Transactive Energy Provides the Next Big Step in DER Integration

Abstract

This is an invited blog article for the Utility Variable Generation Integration Group (UVIG) on the topic of distributed energy resource (DER) integration. Summarizes DER progress since 2004, which signifies a maturing industry. Proposes transactive energy as a means of integrating more DER without special incentives or mitigation techniques.

  • Export Control Reform has been in motion for six years. In 2014, the ITAR regulations surrendered export control of nuclear weapons technology to the control of DOE. Yet no Federal Register notice by DOE detailed where those new regulations could be found. This article explains the disposition that occurred.
  • The day is approaching when your will be able to burn oil produced from shale in your furnace and fuel your car with gasoline made from coal. The synthetic fuels business is becoming attractive even to the major oil companies, which once were reluctant to branch out from natural fuels. For example, last spring (1980) Exxon Corp. bought a majority interest in the Colony Development Operation's oil shale project in Colorado and published a paper whose main message was: synthetic fuels, not imported oil, should fill the projected 15 million bbl/day gap between US demand for conventional oil and gasmore » and expected domestic production early in the next century. The federal Synthetic Fuels Corporation has $17.5 billion with which to provide incentives for synfuel production. However, technological and environmental obstacles make it questionable whether synfuels can meet the legislative goal of providing the equivalent of two million barrels of oil a day by 1992.« less
  • This document tells the story of how an NREL team lead by Terry Penney was instrumental in bringing hybrid vehicles to market.
  • This paper, an account of the Shetlands Islands oil spill (1993), examines the public health controversies surrounding the spill and the clean-up response. It critically examines the risk management policies of both the United Kingdom and the Shetland Islands Public Health Office, and suggests that the withholding of critical information contributed to increased anxiety and suspicion among the disaster victims. In an attempt to reassure the victims, the policies contributed to an increased air of uncertainty. It is further argued with the withholding of information prevents those who are at greatest risk from participating in critical decisions that may affectmore » their health and livelihoods and asserts that a right-to-know policy is a critical first step in risk management practices.« less
