A concise reading on The Potential of Distributed Energy Resources to Tackle Climate Change

Distributed Energy Resources (DER) are decentralised small-scale power generation sources located near end-user consumers that supply part or all of their electricity demand.

A new Policy Brief on The Potential of Distributed Energy Resources to Tackle Climate Change, has just been released.  The authors Xavier Labandeira, and Claudio Marcantonini, Director and Deputy Director of FSR Climate, analyse the opportunities, challenges and requirements for a larger deployment of  DER to contribute to a sustainable low-carbon power system.
