Municipal Utility Distributed Generation Workshop July 19

July 6, 2016

A team of researchers at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota is investigating the unique opportunities and challenges public power faces in deploying distributed energy resource (DER) technologies and programs. Team members have spoken individually with a number of representatives at municipal utilities and rural electric cooperatives across the state, trying to get a broad array of perspectives to inform this listening workshop.

At the workshop for municipal utilities, the UMN group will briefly present the trends and differences among the utilities they have already interviewed, but will spend the majority of the time facilitating discussion among the attendees about their findings, their experiences in the DER space, and how to best use these findings moving forward for practitioners, policy makers and the research team.

Time and Date: 1-4 p.m., Tuesday, July 19.

Location: Morehouse Conference Room, Owatonna Public Utility, 208 Walnut Ave. S., Owatonna, MN 55060.

Refreshments will be provided.
