Energy Storage for Utilities

Room: 207 CD
Date: Monday, April 25, 2016
Time: 3:30PM - 5:00PM EDT

Coordinated by Rocky Mountain Institute with industry veterans providing real-world experience and insights, this workshop is designed to introduce utility employees about energy storage systems and their applications in utility environments.

This workshop provides a deep dive into the what, how, and why behind energy storage systems enabling higher grid reliability and efficiency, lowering operating costs, and augmenting utility revenues. The use of storage will be discussed from a distribution and transmission grid perspective rather than from an energy storage perspective. 

Case studies using common utility planning tools such as CYME, PSCad, etc. will be discussed from a focal point familiar to utility planners and engineers.  Attendees will learn how to identify the highest value services and methodologies to financially value multiple benefits (“value stacking”) from storage. 

Modeling tools, such as EPRI’s Energy Storage Valuation Tool, will show how to compare benefits to the life cycle costs of storage.

Please note this workshop is available to utilities only. There is no charge, however, separate registration is required.
