Morning Theme: Evolution of Energy Storage in the U.S.
Welcome
Fireside Chat with Green Mountain Power

Mary Powell, the CEO of Green Mountain Power, doesn’t even consider her power company a “utility.” She sees it as a startup, where customer experience and distributed energy are her top priorities. We’ll chat with Powell about her approach to managing Vermont’s biggest utility, and where battery storage fits into her vision for the customer-centric future.

Lessons from State Incentives & Pilot Programs

Some states leverage pilot programs to kickstart a new storage industry. Others can't seem to get out of pilot purgatory, where state-funded demos simply lead to more demos without achieving scale. In this panel, we'll hear from experts on the vanguard of state storage policy about what to emulate and what to avoid from state incentive programs so far. It will be geared toward policymakers and storage companies alike.

Optimal Location of Energy Storage - Centralized or Distributed?

GTM Research forecasts that behind-the-meter storage will make up more than 50% of the U.S. energy storage market by 2022, but is this trend moving us in the right direction to drive growth and enhance reliability? We will ask our panelists where the best place for storage is, and we will see if that answer changes dramatically depending on who you ask.
