Energy Experts Meet to Discuss Distributed Energy



John Dukes, General Manager of Sales, WGL Energy Systems (WGL Energy), was among the energy experts on hand during a panel discussion on using Combined Heat and Power (CHP) as an anchor for distributed energy projects. The hour-long discussion occurred on in early June 2016 during the Designing & Implementing Distributed Energy, Energy Storage & Microgrid Projects Executive Forum, which preceded the Infocast Distributed Energy Development and Deployment Summit, held June 2-3, 2016 at the Washington Plaza Hotel in Washington, D.C.

John Dukes Thought Leadership

During the forum, distributed energy adopters and thought leaders convened in our nation’s capital to discuss and develop the local distributed grid of the future. Participants had an opportunity to network with and learn from various leaders from the U.S. General Services Administration, U.S. Department of Energy, state and local representatives, facilities managers, distributed energy and microgrid financiers and many others.

Among the insights that John shared were the benefits of Distributed Generation Combined Heat and Power (DG CHP). Customers can achieve their goals around cost savings, energy security and risk mitigation through behind the meter DG CHP. DG CHP interconnects through an intelligent microgrid to a customer's new or existing facility and provides electricity, heating and cooling to serve 100% of their operational energy requirements. DG CHP can interact in a demand response or frequency regulation market and, in that way, can help reduce energy costs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase the level of energy security.
