In a new technical brief, GET.transform informs on international good practices in distributed renewable energy generation. The brief provides an overview of what distributed generation is, what key technical implications are commonly observed in the system, and what measures are available to address these. The GET.transform brief was authored by Energynautics and aims to support energy sector decision-makers, utilities, and electricity system operators in navigating the complexities of distributed generation.

With the energy transition comes a more and more decentralised power generation. The availability of low-cost renewable energy technologies has furthered a gradual integration of numerous small-scale installations into the power system. As opportunities to scale up distributed generation at the residential, commercial, and industrial level become attractive in many countries and regions of the world, this shift brings forth a range of implications for the power system, necessitating a deeper understanding of the potential benefits and challenges of widespread distributed generation.

The GET.transform brief covers relevant measures for electricity network planning and operation and offers a broad overview of key regulatory and administrative aspects, including requirements and standards pertaining to distributed generation.
