Paritosh Das models policy decisions that drive the economic and engineering decisions that are defining the modern U.S. power grid. He supports work on NREL's open-source Distributed Generation Market Demand (dGen) model, analyzing consumer adoption of distributed energy resources and their impact on the electric power system. Paritosh also supports a portfolio of scenario analyses evaluating the impacts of policies, technology change, and market design on the North American power sector evolution and grid operations. He has expertise in distributed energy resources adoption, grid integration of those resources, and distributed solar PV adoption in international markets.
