The Department of Energy released its "Strategic Plan for Distributed Energy Resources," outlining a national effort to develop clean, reliable and affordable distributed energy technologies over the next two decades. Undersecretary of Energy Ernest J. Moniz announced the details of the Strategic Plan at today's session of the department's Advanced Turbine Systems Annual Program Review.
"This strategic plan provides – for the first time – a framework for integrating the department's many programs related to distributed energy resources, and for laying the groundwork for a system that will allow industrial, commercial and residential customers to choose from a diverse array of distributed energy resource products and services," Undersecretary Moniz said.
