About the Event:
“The Future is already here, it’s just unevenly distributed” – William Gibson
On November 18, FERC issued a NOPR to open wholesale markets to distributed resources. In California, hundreds of megawatts in 2017 and 2018 will be opened up to third party providers by order of CPUC. These are just two major steps towards the restructuring of the distribution grid. In a recent report, Ernst & Young projects $500 Billion will be invested in the Digital Grid by 2023. To address this pivotal shift in the California energy market, Stratton Report is pleased to assemble a panel of speakers at the forefront of this trend, who will assess and debate the different models by which the fast emerging “Grid 2.0” business and engineering landscape will be structured and where each sees the opportunities and risks going forward.
This event serves to kick off a 2017 cycle of monthly intimate symposia and “Working Lunches,” that will take place in major California cities.

• Little bit about their firms and backgrounds—where are they coming from?
• What are some of the interesting opportunities in this space?
• What markets geographically do they see as particularly interesting?
• Looking at the three different models along the Grid 2.0 spectrum—utility- centric, customer-centric, third-party centric—what do they see as the drivers that will push tomorrow’s grids into one or more of these models?
7:35-7:45pm Brief Break
7:45-8:45pm Balance of thesis statements
