The growing role of distributed generation in the Caribbean electricity sector

October 18 - 20, 2017
Miami, Florida

The role of distributed generation is growing in the Caribbean electricity sector. However, this growth accompanies many assumptions about these resources, with impacts on system planning and reliability. At the 9th Caribbean Renewable Energy Forum in Miami, Florida, PURC Director of Energy Studies Ted Kury addressed the Utility Leaders Workshop regarding some research the PURC has conducted around some of these assumptions. The research suggests that consumer behavior might change when they install distributed generation, and this behavior has the potential to impact the way island nations plan their utility systems.
