Distributed Renewable Energy & Storage

Analyzing emerging issues in distributed renewable energy and storage

What We Do

EMP conducts research for and provides technical assistance to domestic and global decision-makers on key policy, regulatory, and economic issues related to the growth of distributed renewable energy and storage technologies.

Our Approach

EMP’s research on distributed solar and storage includes foundational market data collection and analysis, in-depth topical research, and technical assistance. Key data products include annual market reports covering aspects of distributed solar and storage markets, along with accompanying data tools. Our topical research on distributed solar and storage covers a broad range of subjects, including adoption and pricing dynamics, policy and program evaluation, grid integration and planning, alternate rate designs and business models, and customer and community impacts. Drawing on that body of research, EMP provides technical assistance to regulators, policymakers, industry, utilities, and other stakeholders, both domestically and internationally, who are participating in or are impacted by distributed solar and storage markets.
