Net Energy Metering for Behind-the-Meter Renewable Assets
As customer located renewable energy power continues to grow, the valuation of this power to the overall electricity grid is evolving. Net Energy Metering (NEM) pricing is evolving throughout the world in an attempt to support maturing renewable technologies. but also, to provide equitable rate and tariff structures throughout electricity systems. Key issues that have arisen as part of this evolving policy framework include impacts on renewable energy growth, loss of renewable energy jobs, hampering of decarbonization initiatives, cost transfer among ratepayers, lack of equity for lower income and disadvantaged customers, disruption of the renewable energy marketplace, and continued pressure to assure that electricity is affordable.

This presentation will provide a timely update and overview of Net Energy Metering in selected U.S. states including California, Florida, and Texas. Additionally, snapshots of Net Energy Metering policy will be taken from Europe, the Middle East, Asia, South America and Latin America. In particular the webinar will focus on also, how differing energy industry structure and governance impacts NEM policy. Unique technical challenges in developing countries will also be highlighted. Having performed this broad survey, the following questions will be addressed:

• What can the states/countries that are surveyed learn from each other?
• How do the political environments in each survey state/country influence policy outcomes?
• To what degree does behind the meter renewable energy continue to be funded through subsidies or cost transfers?
• At what point should customer located renewable energy be considered mature technology which no longer requires market intervention?
• Is state-specific NEM policy optimum or should customer located renewable energy be guided by regional and national wholesale electricity policy?
