Research output: NRELSubcontract Report


This report summarizes the work in 2001 by the Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP), under contract to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. This work focused on identifying and removing the regulatory and institutional barriers that keep the full economic value of distributed resources from being realized. The following five reports present the work details: 1) Accommodating DistributedResources in Wholesale Markets, NREL/SR-560-32497; 2) Distributed Resource Distribution Credit Pilot Programs - Revealing the Value to Consumers and Vendors, NREL/SR-560-32499; 3) Distributed Resources and Electric System Reliability, NREL/SR-560-32498; 4) Distribution System Cost Methodologies for Distributed Generation, NREL/SR-560-32500; 5) Distribution System Cost Methodologies forDistributed Generation Appendices, NREL/SR. Visit for more information about RAP contract activity to establish environmental output air emissions standards for small-scale electricity generation (to be published as a future NREL subcontract report).
