  • How decentralized assets such as DER (distributed energy resources) form the foundation for transactive energy systems
  • An overview of game theory and its application to transactive energy
  • Why utilities need to start looking at customers as assets to grid performance
  • How transactive energy can enable a paradigm shift to a decentralized energy landscape
