Emerging and Key Issues in Energy Storage Development: Federal Regulatory Overview

Friday, March 23, 2018
01:00 PM - 02:00 PM ET

Please join us for a three-part webinar series addressing emerging and key issues in energy storage development. A recent landmark issuance by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) represents a historic change in the way wholesale markets will be administered and presents new opportunities for traditional utilities, storage developers, and investors. Storage resources continue to move to the forefront of utility planning, and industry participants must prepare for changes to the marketplace that are fast approaching.

Our three-part webinar series will cover a range of key energy storage issues, including FERC’s requirement that organized markets permit full and fair participation by storage resources, and the implications of that requirement; how organized market rules and regulations are expected to evolve in response to Order No. 841; and US state policies to encourage energy storage and commercial and financing considerations for storage resource development and procurement.

In Part 1, Federal Regulatory Overview, we will address:

  • Order No. 841—Overview of FERC’s Mandate
  • Defining Storage Resources and Opportunities for Participation in Wholesale Markets
  • Implications of Order No. 841 on Generation Development
