Utilize the PEER Energy Analysis Tool to explore islanding concepts, assess local distributed resources and identify the value produced by leveraging islanding capability for price response, alternate rates, and grid service. Learn to analyze different improvement strategies by adding and removing local assets, adjusting the size of assets, changing the asset dispatch prices, changing the target maximum project demand, and shifting between flat rate, time of use rate, and real time price rate. Develop informative graphics for characterizing projects with and without distributed capabilities.

Note that if you upgrade to take the Advanced PEER Curriculum, which adds the PEER 301 – PEER Assessment Process, you will be better positioned to leverage PEER to perform a sustainable energy assessment, and you will be eligible to receive up to two hours of coaching from a PEER technical expert to answer any questions you may have about the courses or your project.


  1. Describe how the PEER Energy Analysis process fits into the PEER Program
  2. Model rate structures for projects including supplier charges for energy, demand, standby, capacity, and distribution
  3. Estimate the value of the project’s current distributed generation capabilities and rate structure
  4. Simulate various islanding concepts leveraging distributed resources including generation, storage, and demand response
  5. Determine the return on investment for combinations of distributed resources under different operating strategies
