What we do

To foster market-based development of distributed resources (DR) in Wisconsin, WIDRC, through its collaborative work, addresses five main issues that represent current and potential barriers to DR market development in Wisconsin.

These five issues are -----------

  • Technical requirements
  • Commercial requirements and business practices
  • Siting
  • Applied research and development and associated data collection
  • Education and communication

Specific tasks are taken up by our working groups.


   WIDRC makes annual limited donations to distributed energy resource related activities. Relevant activities include commercial distributed energy projects or studies, distributed energy events and conference sponsorships. The Wisconsin Distributed Resources Collaborative encourages projects that address a diversity of opinions on distributed generation.
