Green Mountain Power continues to drive innovation in distributed energy resource business models

March 30, 2020 | Case Study

Distributed energy resource (DER) energy trading marketplaces are early-stage, and a key challenge remains in assigning value and creating market signals – as value is not simply cost per kWh but rather the relative costs of keeping electricity flowing and the grid stable. Thus, ensuring that the market will match supply and demand presents a major hurdle to widespread adoption. As a result, energy players have only pursued a few notable projects, such as those by startups Leap in California and GreenSync in the U.K. and by select utilities like Ameren in Illinois and Centrica in the U.K. Vermont-based Green Mountain Power (GMP) has been at the forefront of pushing the boundaries of traditional utility offerings. Keeping with its forward-looking reputation, Green Mountain Power plans to trial a DER energy trading marketplace in 2020.
