Modernizing Integrated Resource Planning - Breakfast & Panel Discussion

Event Detail

NARUC Breakfast

 

The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Southern Current are convening a panel discussion the morning of Monday, November 12, 2018. The breakfast event will be held on-site at the Loews Royal Pacific Resort in Timor Sea Room 2.

In order for utilities to plan for meeting future energy demand in a cost-effective, risk-minimizing manner, many states require utilities to file integrated resource plans with their state public utility commissions. Disruptive new technologies, aging infrastructure, and lower-cost renewables and energy storage are changing the way utilities traditionally plan for long-term investments. This breakfast will explore the ways utilities should evaluate the benefits of solar and paired storage to meet future resource needs, increase grid flexibility, and avoid redundant investments.

 

The breakfast will run from 7:00 - 8:30am, with the panel discussion beginning at 7:45am.

Speakers

  • Moderator, Sean Gallagher, VP State Affairs, SEIA
  • Hamilton Davis, Director of Regulatory Affairs, Southern Current
