Continental Breakfast & Check-In
Keynote Panel: Coops and Munis CEOs - Storage as the Game Changer

Due to their ownership and operating structures, as well as the autonomous approval processes, utility cooperatives and municipal utilities are great testing grounds for energy storage. As smaller players, these utilities face higher risks and can count on fewer resources and across footprints to provide reliable and resilient electricity to their customers. Energy storage can be particularly impactful for these utilities when it comes to T&D upgrade deferrals, as they typically serve vast distances, and have higher miles of copper wires per customer. #showall
