Introduction to Distributed Generation (DG) Applications (1PDH)
The evolution of the electricity markets has changed….Distributed Generation is a broad category and although there are some more apparent applications of the concept; some applications may not be top of mind when customers are considering their approach to an energy strategy or inquiring about on site generation.
This course will provide an approach to categorizing these distributed generation (DG) uses and explain a few of these opportunities in greater detail.
After completing this course, participants will be able to:
- Describe energy ecosystem trends and the needs driving the evolution of DG
- Identify the categories of DG applications (Use Cases) and components of the system
- Define possible DG approaches to customer energy needs
This December PowerHour will be hosted by:
