Market Uncertainty in Distributed Solar Deployment

The Market Uncertainty in Distributed Solar Deployment online PDH course is a part of the Renewable Energy category of courses. This course presents an overview of distributed solar in the United States including historical trends and state and federal policies. It also includes projections for residential customer adoption of DPV systems in the years to come.

Distributed solar photovoltaic (DPV) systems that generate energy in behind-the-meter applications for residential, commercial, and other end-use sectors are a growing—and potentially disruptive—development in the U.S. power system. While less than 1% of all electricity generation in the United States came from DPV systems in 2016, this technology has experienced rapid growth in recent years and, as of the end of 2017, over 1.6 million DPV systems had been installed.

The online PDH course is based on National Renewable Energy Laboratory publication titled “Market and Modeling Uncertainty in Distributed Solar Deployment Projections: A Multi-Model Comparison”.

This course is intended to be used by architects, all engineers and project managers and other construction professionals interested in learning about distributed PV systems.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Provide an overview of distributed solar in the United States
  • Discuss historical trends in DPV electricity generation
  • Convey how state and federal policy has driven the expansion of DPV
  • Describe some of the economic factors and market impacts of DPV
  • Measure grid parity from DPV
