Distributed generation encompasses various developing technologies that generate, store, and distribute energy in locations close to the end user. The transformation of the nation’s electric grid from a traditional central station model to more dynamic and interconnected system impacts our daily lives in innumerable ways, yet remains hardly noticeable to anyone not looking for it. The recently released book provides an overview of the emerging legal and policy issues involving the planning, engineering, operations, economics, and governance of distributed generation.
