Impact of Customer Actions on the Distribution Grid

Presented by: Doug Houseman

The presentation draws from a large data set of actual North American Distribution Circuits and Substations to look at what happens and what is needed to make the energy transition. The underlying model has the ability to scale on a circuit by circuit basis solar PV, building electrification, energy storage, demand response, and electric vehicles. The presentation will focus on the “end state” of electrification in 2050.
