Guidehouse Insights finds value and opportunity in deregulated electricity markets

Electricity generation shifts to a decentralized model with distributed networks that provide more reliable, affordable and sustainable electricity

BOULDER, Col., June 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — A new report from Guidehouse Insights reviews the opportunities for distributed energy resource (DER)-based customer solutions in deregulated electricity markets, as well as enabling technologies and business models that are encouraging markets deregulated regions.

Power generation is moving from a centralized, top-down, regulated model to a decentralized model with distributed networks that provide more reliable, affordable, and sustainable electricity. According to a new report from Guidehouse Insights, DER deployments offer stakeholders new revenue streams and are opportunities to provide more localized solutions to network stability, reliability and resiliency.

“The increased integration of variable energy resources, such as renewable energy-based resources, into the grid can fundamentally affect its operation,” says Rohith Unni, research analyst at Guidehouse Insights. “Deregulated energy markets have new value streams in a distributed, digital and decarbonized energy system.”

DER also offers several new revenue streams to stakeholders. As stated in the report, the introduction of competition in electricity markets removes centralized control and allows the entry of independent power producers. According to the report, in these markets, players no longer have the responsibility to supply electricity to all consumers, but can decide how to maximize their profit potential.

The report, Generating value from deregulated electricity markets, provides an overview of DER opportunities in deregulated energy markets. It explores the changing role of system managers and the various DER services to the network. Additionally, it examines how DER owners can create multiple value streams by using various business models and participating in different markets. It also covers enabling digitized platforms that encourage market stakeholder participation. An executive summary of the report is available for free download from the Guidehouse Insights website.
