Utilities and regional forecasters are projecting significant load growth due to transportation electrification and building decarbonization, what is the scale being forecasted? Now is the time to double down on energy efficiency, demand management, and grid integrated buildings to control growth and improve system operations.
Session 2 – Regulatory Tools to Advance Decarbonization
While policies are important for decarbonization, regulatory tools also play an important role. How can regulators ensure there are robust and effective incentives for energy efficiency measures and smart distribution system investments?
Session 3 – Electricity Markets’ Role in Delivering Clean Energy
A more integrated western grid brings efficiencies and opportunities for decarbonization. Electricity markets are increasingly important for flexibility and resource adequacy. What is the role of governing bodies in promoting decarbonization, ensuring adequate transmission is available, and promoting customer-side resources?
Let’s hear from the next gen innovators who have new technologies entering the market. What is the outlook for these technologies? What is the role of these technologies in the next decade? How can we accelerate the adoption of evolving technologies while ensuring environmentally and culturally responsible clean energy development?
