 About Utility of the Future: A Grid 2.0 Policy Tutorial

A comprehensive discussion by experts close to the California and New York regulatory proceedings of the new policy framework being assembled to provide structure to the grid of tomorrow. This detailed one-and-a-half day overview will provide essential insights for utilities, DER developers, financiers, and customers as they make plans to navigate the evolving electric power paradigm.

The demands on the electric grid are multiplying, including greater levels of renewable generation, the increasing penetration of customer-owned but grid-connected energy assets, and the electrification of transportation. In response, many states are working to develop new policy frameworks to enable the power distribution system to evolve in response, led most formally by California and New York. Regulators, grid owners, customers, third-party aggregators and technology providers are helping to develop new rules of the game for market and rate design, for new business models, and for new operational capabilities.

This in-depth tutorial, conducted by experts who are both involved in and deeply familiar with this policy-making process, will provide an invaluable deep dive for anyone involved with the evolution of the grid. The policy development process is complex and ongoing and thus difficult to track. Attendees will find this fine-grained summary of progress to date will bring them up to speed on the innovations in grid policy being constructed in California, New York, and other states. For anyone who needs to understand the organization, operation, monetization strategies, and opportunities of the grid of the future, this can’t be missed.
