Noteworthy Pitch
Dominion Energy Innovation Center's DEIC Accelerate program introduced 15 startups to dozens of business units across Dominion Energy in its first two years. In this session, Adam Sledd of DEIC and Michael Beiro of Linebird will discuss how the program creates value for both the utility and the startups.  They will cover how a startup can maximize its opportunity to quickly build customer relationships, and how the utility benefits from creating a formal framework to engage startup companies.

Equipment Purchase Agreements and EPC Contracts for Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) Projects
As the market expands for projects integrating solar and wind power generation facilities with battery energy storage systems (BESS), owners and developers are negotiating two primary agreements in connection with the construction and development of these types of projects – the Equipment Purchase Agreement (EPA) for the supply of the BESS, and the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) Agreement for the installation and integration of the owner-supplied BESS equipment, and the engineering, procurement and construction of the Balance of Plant (BoP). As they enter into these negotiations, owners and developers need to be aware of a number of unique issues that are present in these agreements – including around such topics as warranties (including remedies and warranty conditions), performance testing and guarantees (including what should be guaranteed and how), completion requirements and standards of performance. This presentation will explore some of these unique issues, as well as discuss possible approaches to addressing them. In addition, we will examine “Best Practices” with regard to certain key subjects in these agreements, including around such topics as delivery and risk of loss, performance testing and guarantees, and warranties and warranty conditions, as a way of best allocating risk between the owner/developer and the equipment supplier and the EPC contractor. Finally, we will address key issues and techniques that can be implemented in order to “weave” the EPA and the BoP EPC Agreement together so as to replicate (as much as possible) the near turnkey risk allocation found in the LSTK “wrap” approach.

Deploying Energy Storage Systems in Urban Environments: Safety Driving Global Growth Opportunity
According to Wood Mackenzie, “2020 was a record year for global energy storage.” In its recent research, the firm noted the energy storage market “is expected to grow 27 times by 2030 by adding 70 GWh of storage capacity a year to surpass 729 GWh in 2030.” It’s clear that energy storage systems (ESS) are, and will continue to be, critical in the transition from fossil fuels to clean energy. But despite already demonstrating compelling economics in multiple transmission and distribution grid-connected scenarios, ESS deployments remain limited in urban areas due to safety concerns inherent in legacy battery architectures. Notably, fires involving the Arizona Public Service, NIO and Tesla – along with more than a dozen at South Korean power grid facilities – have heightened questions and concerns about lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery safety. Rightly so. Any number of fires is unacceptable; safety is always paramount. However, Li-ion batteries aren’t inherently unsafe. It’s how they’re architected that directly affects their safety. Innovative Li-ion battery architectures, paired with extensive testing and compliance requirements, are now overcoming the risks of fires and explosions. As a result, industry focus on ESS is shifting to safety, ease of installation and footprint to complement cost and performance metrics. This session will provide actionable insights on near- and longer-term urban ESS opportunities.
