In the near future distributed energy resource networks will enhance power reliability and create greater economic value than single site distributed energy projects. These networks offer the advantages of decentralized infrastructure and automated managerial processes that optimize energy production near the point of consumption. Barriers to DER networks consist of traditional market impediments as well as challenges for early adopters specific to networking distributed energy resources. This paper examines the motivations of early market adopters and predicts likely outcomes if certain conditions are met.
