Infocast's 7th Annual Storage Week is scheduled for Feb. 11–13, 2014 and will take place in Santa Clara, California.
FERC’s recent issuance of Order No. 792 amends interconnection rules to specifically include storage devices in the pro forma Small Generator Interconnection Procedures (SGIP) and Small Generator Interconnection Agreement (SGIA). This opens the way for storage to be added to utility systems through the SGIP or Fast Track Process either as a standalone asset or as a part of a system including distributed generation such as solar. How will this rule affect utility procurement plans? How are leading solar providers incorporating storage in their plans?
At the 7th Annual Storage Week, attendees will hear from former FERC Chairman Jon Wellinghoff, the leaders of storage integration efforts at AEP, Duke, ITC Holdings, PG&E, PGE, and SDG&E, and key executives from major solar developers SolarCity and Sunverge Energy the roles storage will play in the future. They will get an opportunity to meet with the policy-makers, regulators, utility and renewable energy executives who will form the cornerstone of storage deployment across the nation. The road to bankable revenue flows is opening—come to the 7th Annual Storage Week to position your company to move from pilot projects to full scale deployment.
