ACORE’s Renewable Energy Grid Forum convenes senior renewable energy executives, experts in the storage and technology sectors, system operators, financiers, and corporate purchasers to maximize the use and integration of renewable energy in our nation’s power markets.

Partner Mark Zebrowski will be moderating the “DER Integration for an Optimized Grid” panel where questions on how to effectively integrate renewable energy, energy storage, electric vehicles, and demand response in a distribution management system to help optimize the grid will be answered. Other topics include:

  • Rate basing DER equitably to help recover the revenue needed to maintain the system
  • New regulatory policies/PUC actions to help fund and field DER resources
  • Effects of various state initiatives and federal actions to foster DER integration
  • Non-wires alternatives to traditional transmission/distribution
  • The benefits of centrally-dispatched vs. behind-the-meter storage, and when the performance attributes of different storage technologies are needed
  • Rate design considerations and their impact on communities of color
  • Lessons learned from rebuilding Puerto Rico’s grid
