The uptake of network-connected and consumer-owned distributed energy resources (DER) represents a transformational change to the energy mix, structure and operation of our power systems and markets. If DER can be successfully integrated into our electricity networks and markets, there is potential for all electricity system users to benefit. This paper discusses some of the important technical, economic and social opportunities and challenges of optimising the value of DER integration into electricity networks and markets.
