ENVRES 267: The Changing Electricity Resource Mix: The Rise of Distributed Solar, Storage, and Demand Response

Research seminar -- continuation of ENVRES 265 and 266. As part of Stanford¿s ¿Energy Transformation Collaborative¿, participants implement pilot projects in cooperation with utility partners and with the support of technology providers, policy makers and NGOs. Projects include applications of distributed solar generation, storage, demand response, energy efficiency and grid operations. This course is the third part of a year-long sequence designed to create real-world test beds for innovations that can address major resource challenges - in this case, the changing power system. The pilots will be launched in the field in the spring, with the potential for summer internships at participating utilities. Results will be documented and published so that learning can be shared and innovative solutions can be replicated by others. Enrollment available to ENVRES 266 participants only (or by special permission from instructor).
