Paper discusses impacts of Distributed Energy Resources on energy planning

With a long-term perspective focused on the transformations power markets are going through, EPE publishes a Discussion Paper with the objective of identifying challenges for energy planning, as well as exploring ways to deal with the prospects of increasing shares of Distributed Energy Resources (RED) connected to the grids. DER are defined as electricity generation and/or storage technologies, located within the boundaries of the area of the distribution grid, usually adjacent to consumer units, behind of the meter. This definition has often been extended to include energy efficiency, demand response (DR) and demand side management (DSM).

With the Discussion Paper, EPE aims to broaden the dialogue with society and give more transparency to its work, bringing to the public an agenda of challenges to be faced, so that Brazilian energy planning can cope with new technologies and business models that have been emerging. In the case of DER, EPE highlights the need for adaptation in the models and analyses, involving topics such as setting up new technologies into the models, the use of behavioral models, the elaboration of sensitivity analyses and techniques for decision making under uncertainty.
