Practical Implications for Renewables, Storage, DERs, Interstate Trading, Electrification, Net Zero Buildings

With the passage of California’s SB100 bill, a gigantic new surge of renewables and supporting infrastructure—worth tens of billions of dollars—will be needed. And the emerging targets of other Western states will further power a clean energy surge. But the road ahead is far from clear, as broad legislative strokes must be converted to detailed implementation plans and policies.

Other big questions affecting the energy landscape across the West will be addressed, including:

  • What will be the agenda of the new officials leading energy policy across the West?
  • Who will be best positioned to take advantage of these new mandates and initiatives?
  • What kinds of investment, both public and private, will be deployed?
  • Will larger region markets emerge, and if so, how?
  • How will greater grid volatility associated with renewables be handled across the region?
  • What technology solutions are needed?
  • Where will additional emissions reductions be found?

Infocast’s WESTERN ENERGY MARKETS SUMMIT will convene state commissioners, grid authorities, utilities, forward-looking energy investors, corporate energy buyers, energy/climate advocates, car companies, and tech innovators to explore how these broad new goals will be converted into actionable plans.

RTO Insider

Website

RTO Insider™ is your eyes and ears on the organized electric markets, putting you “inside the room” at PJM Interconnection, MISO, NYISO, ISO-NE and SPP. We provide independent, objective coverage and analysis of the wholesale electric industry’s markets and policymaking, saving you time and ensuring you don’t miss the issues most important to your interests.

Features include:

  • Coverage of key RTO/ISO committee, subcommittee and task force meetings. We’ll be there when you can’t.
  • Coverage of news events impacting the industry throughout the 35 states managed by the RTOs/ISOs.
  • Coverage of state and federal regulatory (FERC, EPA) & legislative news affecting RTO/ISO stakeholders.
  • Issue Briefs: Concise summaries of major issues (e.g., Order 1000, EPA’s 111(d) rule).

What RTO Insider isn’t: We are not advocates or representatives. You can trust that our coverage will not be slanted to the interests of any member or membership sector.

What RTO Insider is: A source for both the big picture (e.g. analyses of major FERC rulings and RTO stakeholder developments) and the details (why is Manual 28 being changed and what does that mean to me?)
