Bridges to New Solar Business Models: Opportunities to Increase and Capture the Value of Distributed Solar Photovoltaics

Share
In this report, Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI), with support from the U.S. Department of Energy’s SunShot Initiative, investigates opportunities to optimize and demonstrate DPV’s value as it is integrated into the grid to utilities, customers, and solar companies alike. The report highlights three promising “building blocks” for bridge business model strategies that can enable stakeholders to increase, capture, and share DPV value (see Figure ES2). These building blocks are not mutually exclusive, and can be combined to create more-comprehensive solar business models. Regulators, utilities, and solar companies will need to adapt and refine components of these concepts, depending on the specific local market and regulatory environment.
