Storage East - Presented by Infocast

Hear from East Coast Policymakers, Regulators, and Utilities on How to Get Your Piece of Storage Mandates and ISO Market Opportunities

The eastern interconnection is witnessing a burgeoning demand for storage as Massachusetts, New York, and New Jersey alone have announced targets of 5.27 GW of energy storage. Even Florida is projected to be a storage hotspot. And beyond these opportunities, FERC Order 841 has removed barriers to the participation of energy storage in the capacity, energy, and ancillary service markets operated by RTOs and ISOs – and ISO NE, NYISO, and PJM are all responding.

Infocast’s inaugural event, Storage East, will gather policymakers, market operators, utilities, and the entire storage value chain to provide definitive information on policies, programs, and procurement across the eastern interconnection. Vendors and developers will have an opportunity to profit in the eastern markets by deferring costs associated with transmission, distribution and generation capacity, minimizing peak loads, assisting in the integration of additional renewable assets, improving reliability, and lowering emissions. This is a remarkable chance to understand the full range of opportunities opening up in energy storage across the eastern United States. All those who desire to claim a first-mover advantage and build lasting success must attend.
