Utilities, customers, third parties, and other stakeholders all see the grid edge as theirs. It is not, rather it belongs to everyone, and everyone needs to cooperate. The grid edge is where the major evolution of the grid to support the transition will happen. Currently the edge is considered to be at the meter with the utility owning what is on the grid side and the customer what is on the customer side. The reality is the grid edge is far more complex, and the thinking needs to change. With building electrification, distributed generation and storage, the need for far more sweeping demand response programs and electrification of transportation the grid edge will need to evolve. To start with metering, measurement, control, investment, maintenance relationships, and more need to change. This course will provide a view into what and why the grid edge needs to evolve and the value of doing so.
