Communicating the New Energy Landscape Webinar #2 (#964.1)
1-1/2 Skill Builder Credits

The emergence of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) technologies is giving consumers more choices than ever before. Electric cooperatives are well positioned as consumer-owned organizations to be their member's "trusted partner" in navigating the opportunities, risks and benefits of solar and other emerging technologies. This course discusses the top DER technologies, policy issues and questions that co-ops must be prepared to discuss with their members.

Key topics:
  • Discussing changes in the market structure of the electric energy industry
  • Anticipating member questions
  • Integrating DER with the cooperative's strategic plan
  • Examining key questions in the boardroom about DER

Note: This is a REPEAT of the January 19–20 BLC program to allow for more attendees to participate. NRECA limits webinar attendees to 30 participants. Choose which session works out best in your schedule.
