The electric industry landscape is undergoing significant changes, requiring new distribution operation structures, procedures and tools, and new products and services at wholesale and retail levels.
Two major complementary developments are gaining momentum to help address these needs, namely, the Transactive Energy framework and the new Distribution System Operator (DSO) construct. The DSO construct expands the role of the distribution utility operator into a facilitator of retail markets and transactive exchanges while ensuring reliable distribution system operation.
Transactive commodities at the retail level need not be limited to energy, but may also include energy derivatives as well as transport rights similar to their wholesale counterparts.
This panel session addresses these issues with a view to technical, operational, regulatory, and organizational challenges and opportunities.
