Behind and Beyond the Meter Synopsis

The historical ways in which electricity was generated in large central power plants and delivered to passive customers through a one-way transmission and distribution network - as everyone knows - is radically changing to one where consumers can generate, store and consume a significant portion of their energy needs energy locally. This, however, is only the first step, soon to be followed by the ability to share or trade with others using the distribution network. More exciting opportunities are possible with the increased digitalization of BTM assets, which in turn can be aggregated into large portfolios of flexible load and generation and optimized using artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Behind and Beyond the Meter Press Reviews

A new book [delving into] the nitty gritty of similar and more broad-based production, use, storage and trading of behind-the-meter alternative energy technologies, Behind and Beyond the Meter looks at the rapidly changing energy sector driven by the rise of renewable resources on the supply side and equally dramatic developments on the demand side, including distributed generation and storage, electric vehicles and other like innovations. It's not far fetched, to imagine a future with many net zero energy communities, those generating and feeding into the network as many kWhs as they take out, Sioshansi emphasized. Standing in the way are regulatory barriers, including those that thwart localized trading of power. The editor and contributors urge regulators to avoid stifling innovation and instead to encourage and reward this energy innovation. --Elizabeth McCarthy, 9 Apr 2020, CA Current, published on Our electricity rid was not built to accommodate large amounts of power being generated back into it from multiple small sources - reverse electricity flows. Getting the integration of the behind-the-meter technologies right could deliver more than $1 billion in benefits to customers by 2030 in Australia alone. --Andrew Dillon, CEO, Energy Networks Australia As options to generate, store and potentially trade energy, proliferate and intermediaries emerge to aggregate and optimize the behind-the-meter loads and resources, the principle function of the distribution network and the interface among the stakeholders will be radically altered. --Paul de Wit, Sr. Adviser at Alliander, the Netherlands and Chair of Eurelectric's Working Group on Institutional Frameworks The evolving nature of electric generation, consumption, storage and the distribution system has significant implications for the grid, incumbent utilities, consumers, grid managers and the regulatory framework. These are among the central matters the Alberta Utilities Commission will examine in its ongoing distribution inquiry. --Mark Kolesar, Chair, Alberta Utilities Commission
