Thermal and/or electrical energy that is produced, managed, consumed and/or
stored close to the end-user with at least 50% of output meeting local load(s).

DE projects vary in size and there is no set maximum capacity because systems are designed to meet a specific local load requirement. However, most DE systems are less than 50 MW and most are connected to the distribution wires (not the transmission wires). Some DE systems are not connected to the grid. These are behind the fence or serving remote needs.
