High Penetration Solar PV Integration – In this comprehensive report, you will find in-depth analyses of utility challenges created by high penetration distributed PV, value propositions, vendor profiles, five case studies, detailed forecasts, and more.
Penetration of distributed solar is set to increase by over 300% in the United States over the next four years, straining existing distribution infrastructure at the local level in at least thirteen states. Secondary distribution grid control equipment, including power electronics-based solutions, represents the most cost-effective technical solution to these problems. According GTM Research’s Grid Edge practice, the market for these devices will grow tenfold over the next four years.
