Distribution System Planning – State Examples by Topic

May 18, 2018

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) held a webinar on May 14, 2018 to present and discuss a new report, Distribution System Planning - State Examples by Topic. This work was funded by the U.S. Department of Energy's Solar Energy Technologies Office. 

This report, developed by PNNL and LBNL, draws on a recently completed study for the U.S. Department of Energy's Grid Modernization Lab Consortium on how utility regulators in 16 states have addressed distribution system planning in the context of grid modernization and higher levels of distributed energy resources (DERs). Information from the original DOE report, located here, was updated, synthesized and reorganized by category for the latest report and webinar.
