Fireside Chat: The Value of the California Energy Storage Mandate

Room: Ballroom A
Date: Tuesday, April 26, 2016
Time: 11:00AM - 11:20AM EDT

NREL's Paul Denholm and ESA Market Analytics Chair Udi Helman worked with a number of experts to develop a paper late in 2015 that offers expert insights into the multiple operational benefits that will be captured as California continues to implement AB 2514 - which sets utility procurement targets calling for 1.325 GW of energy storage.

Denholm and Helman will host a fireside chat discussing their team's findings and the implications for widespread energy storage deployment. From reduced starts/stops to greater system-wide efficiency - with millions in annual savings - their research provides a framework that can be applied in numerous markets for rigorous analysis of storage's impact.
