SEIA Webinar: Integrating Energy Storage into the Grid: Expanding Solar Energy and Reliability

12/05/2013 01:00 p.m. - 02:15 p.m. EST

Clean Technology


Join Solar Energy Industries Association(SEIA) for a timely discussion on the recent regulatory changes for energy storage and how these changes will affect grid integration, solar energy expansion, and improvements to grid reliability. Both the FERC and CPUC have adopted new rules and procurement requirements to encourage energy storage as a resource, enhance power system operations, increase efficiency, and reduce costs.

FERC adopted these rule changes with the intent of fostering opportunities for energy storage technologies such as compressed air energy storage, regenerative fuel cells, batteries, superconducting magnetic energy storage, flywheels and thermal energy storage systems to participate in electricity markets and supply ancillary services to wholesale electric market participants and electric transmission providers.

CPUC adopted energy storage procurement requirements for the state’s three largest investor-owned utilities, retail electric suppliers and its community aggregators. The state’s investor-owned utilities will begin procuring energy storage assets or services in 2014.

Expert speakers will discuss these regulatory changes and implications from the regulatory, company, and technology perspective.
