The Integrated Grid: A Benefit-Cost Framework

This report, which is Phase II of EPRI’s Integrated Grid Project, provides a framework for assessing the benefits and costs of accommodating more distributed energy resources, and effects on grid reliability and resilience. In Phase III, EPRI will build on this work by consulting with utilities to undertake pilot projects that will provide a better understanding of the operational value, performance issues and economic benefits of grid-integrated DER deployment.
