Time: 2:00PM - 3:00PM EDT

Utilities are one of the biggest customers for energy storage technology - but they also can be owners and operators of these systems as well. Hear from utility leaders and partners on how, why, where, and for what purpose energy storage systems are being deployed.

From resiliency and T&D deferral, to peak shaving and capacity replacement, there is a definitive value proposition for energy storage in utility operations.  While every storage systems that interacts with the grid impacts utilities, they are many times the owner and operator of those systems as well - providing the ability to capture all of the stacked values that storage delivers.

Hear from Pacific Gas & Electric, Pedernales Electric Cooperative, National Grid and Oncor about how energy storage systems are being deployed on their systems, and the value that can be delivered from their operations on the system.
