With increasing demands on our nation’s electric grid and its impact on energy security, the Hoover Institution’s Shultz-Stephenson Energy Task Force and the Brookings Institution’s Energy Security Initiative teamed up to examine Distributed Power Systems (DPS), a combination of distributed generation sources and grid storage. Hoover distinguished fellow George P. Shultz and Brookings Energy Security Initiative director Charlie Ebinger have undertaken the first comprehensive study to assess the environmental, national security, and economic strengths and weaknesses of DPS; a combined research team of Hoover and Brookings experts are examining the policies that will enable DPS in a feasible and cost-effective manner.  Click here to view the video of the event.
