Shared Solar: Current Landscape, Market Potential, and the Impact of Federal Securities Regulation

Analysis from the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) finds that by making shared solar programs available to households and businesses that currently cannot host on-site photovoltaic (PV) systems shared solar could represent 32 to 49 percent of the distributed photovoltaic market in 2020.

Deployment of Behind-The-Meter Energy Storage for Demand Charge Reduction

This study investigates how economically motivated customers will use energy storage for demand charge reduction, as well as how this changes in the presence of on-site photovoltaic power generation, to investigate the possible effects of incentivizing increased quantities of behind-the-meter storage.

The Effect of State Policy Suites on the Development of Solar Markets

Analysts at the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have used statistical analyses and detailed case studies to better understand why solar market policies in certain states are more successful. Their findings indicate that while no standard formula for solar implementation exists, a combination of foundational policies and localized strategies can increase solar photovoltaic (PV) installations in any state.

Seven Common Mistakes That Keep Solar Customers Away

Getting homeowners to go solar is difficult - to say the least. It's expensive and time-consuming, and it's hard to predict who will go solar and why. We've been working on reducing this cost and clearing up the mystery.

Photovoltaic System Pricing Trends

With significant variance in estimates of cost and price within the solar market, DOE's Sunshot Initiative with scientists from National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Lawrence Berkley National Labs, have released their report that seeks to address these differences.

Survey of State-Level Cost and Benefit Estimates of Renewable Portfolio Standards

The report summarizes state-level RPS costs to date and considers how those costs may evolve going forward given scheduled increases in RPS targets and cost containment mechanisms incorporated into existing policies. The report also summarizes RPS benefits estimates, based on published studies for individual states, and discusses key methodological considerations.
