US FERC order 2222 brings customer & grid benefits from distributed energy resources

The US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission recently issued Order No. 2222 to remove barriers that have hindered aggregations of distributed energy resources from participating in regional wholesale markets. The order allows energy resources like rooftop solar, energy storage, and electric vehicles to compete in regional wholesale electricity markets as storage or distributed resources for the first time. The order will lead to benefits such as lower prices for ratepayers due to increased competition, improved grid resilience and more flexibility in the US.
