A New Growth Engine for US Distributed Energy Markets
A significant transformation is underway in the US distributed energy resource (DER) market, which is set to almost double by 2027 concerning 2022.
While distributed solar has represented a majority of capital expenditure over the last five years, EV charging infrastructure (EVCI) will be taking over as the growth engine for the next five years.
Watch on-demand our 5-year outlook for the US DER market and the factors driving both the growth and market share transformation.
We address key commercial questions:
- What EV charging segments are set to grow the greatest, and when?
- How could automakers and big-box retailers disrupt the business models for pure-play EV charging networks?
- Which technology and customer segments demonstrate the greatest opportunity for energy-as-a-service offerings, and therefore opportunities for lenders and asset managers?
- What opportunities exist for monetizing DERs in market and utility programs, and what models exist for capturing this post-sale revenue?
