Energy Storage for the Grid as Used by Utilities – Case Studies & Lessons Learned
Decades ago, high energy prices created market entry points for Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS). Since then, market conditions have expanded coverage and evolved, and now battery energy storage is as inexpensive as it has ever been, and declining year over year, opening new markets as the cost of traditional solutions is more expensive than a BESS solution. Many different applications of BESS have been installed and operated: frequency regulation, frequency reserves; energy arbitrage; renewable energy smoothing, and time-shifting; to non-wires-alternatives that substitute for building out new transmission and distribution lines to customers. In this session, three case studies for three different customers will be discussed and lessons learned and recommendations to paths forward will be identified.

All Hands on Deck: Improving Renewable Energy Access for Low-income Communities
Climate change is an all-hands-on-deck challenge, and everyone should be able to participate in the low-carbon economy. But, despite the fact that low-income families are on the front lines of a warming climate, their clean energy adoption lags higher-income customers. Pecan Street will review the reasons for this discrepancy, examine efforts to address it, and preview the organization’s upcoming community-driven research with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.

Leadership Summit
Meeting the Infrastructure Needs of the Net-Zero Future
Meeting the Infrastructure Needs of the Net-Zero Future
The always complicated process forced upon developers and builders of new projects for the energy sector gets more challenging and problematic every year. Financial constraints, technology, and connectivity needs, regulatory hurdles, political pressures, and, last but not least, environmental goals and challenges are not always in alignment, so utilities and their partners have hard rows to hoe in bringing those together. A significant part of our build strategy is now planning for weather-related challenges with hurricanes, wildfires, and other natural disasters.  How do we prepare ourselves to keep the grid and infrastructure online or restore as quickly as possible when disaster strikes?  This session will look at how both utilities, developers, and partners navigate the building and install the intelligent equipment needed for Destination 2050.

How Local Energy Markets Benefit Distribution Utilities
The local energy market (LEM) enables consumers and prosumers (those who can generate solar photovoltaic energy, for instance), within a defined network topology, to trade renewable energy amongst each other in a peer to peer (P2P) fashion. In this presentation, we showcase the results of a case study utilising Powerledger's blockchain enabled technology using real customer data to evaluate the performance of P2P trading. The results demonstrate mitigation in congestion and lesser dependency on the grid and reducing or deferring capital expenses for network augmentation.
