Principal Investigator: Bob Armstrong
Collaborator: Ignacio Pérez-Arriaga 

The MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI) Utility of the Future (UoF) study seeks to evaluate how distributed energy resources (DERs) such as solar power, electric vehicles, energy storage, and demand response may affect the utility sector. This research will have significant implications for regulation and market design. The IPL is assisting in disseminating research results to regulators.
