California Energy - Presented by Infocast

A Who’s Who of Key Players Address the Impacts of Major Policy Changes on the California Market

The California energy market is at the center of a maelstrom of change that will have profound impacts on strategic directions and opportunities for utilities, power producers, preferred resources providers and customers on multiple fronts:

  • The 50% RPS is driving not only wind and solar procurements, but also increased demands for investments in energy storage, DR and other fast responding grid assets
  • Regionalization of CAISO is also being driven by increased reliance on renewables across the West, but the path forward to a multistate RTO is uncertain
  • IRPs from IOUs and public utilities will for the first time include distributed assets, with unknown impacts on long term power procurement
  • The loss of Aliso Canyon and quick deployment of storage assets points out both the challenges and creative solutions in solving local capacity issues
  • The California Demand Response Auction Mechanism is opening the wholesale market for the first time to aggregated DR from distributed energy resources
  • Planners are for the first time trying to establish multiyear RA requirements, with the potential for revised flexible capacity requirements that could affect wind, solar and gas power projects

Only those that truly understand the complexity and confusion of California’s rapidly changing energy market will be able to develop strategies to get ahead and profit!

California Energy Summit 2017 will bring policy-makers together with utility, IPP, energy storage and finance executives to provide the latest information and insights on the opportunities and threats in California, and discuss potential strategies for the future.

Plus – Don’t Miss our Pre-Summit Executive Briefing!

The Road to the Distributed Energy Future in California will bring policy-makers together with utility, solar PV, energy storage, DR and end-users to examine the latest policy and regulatory activities driving distributed energy in California, explore future strategies, and provide invaluable perspectives on how to seize the myriad DER opportunities in California and build the infrastructure to support the growth of these assets.
