Gaining insight and control over your PV installations is crucial to ensure profitability and customer satisfaction in an uncertain solar market. With many options to choose from, one proven way is migrating your operations to robust cellular connectivity and an easy to use management platform.
The road to seamless distributed energy resources (DERs) integration will follow different courses, but the state of disruption is a stop ahead for all utilities. DERs challenge traditional approaches to reliability; bypass established standards and regulation; steer the industry toward new, intelligent grid-edge control paradigms; and put new business models on the map.
The design, construction, and commissioning of large-scale PV projects present unique challenges that can only be overcome through effective partnerships up and down the solar value chain. In this webinar, NEXTracker CEO Dan Shugar and Blattner Energy Director of Solar Operations Stephen Jones will discuss the art and science of transforming massive quantities of steel, PV and electrical into reliable, high performance power plants.
From FERC Order 1000 to New York’s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) initiative, electric utilities are increasingly being asked to consider non-wires alternatives (NWA) to traditional investments in transmission and distribution infrastructure. States are taking notice of the grid planning opportunity with notable proceedings already underway in California, Maryland and Massachusetts. To help utilities successfully navigate the new industry dynamic, this webinar will provide attendees with practical information to inform project planning and implementation of a NWA.
Over the past year, Doosan GridTech has helped Puget Sound Energy and Snohomish County Public Utilities District meet major milestones towards installing intelligent energy storage that creates grid value on a bulk and local level. This includes the installation of three megawatt-scale energy storage systems along with local- and fleet-level ESS control platforms using an open, standards-based framework (MESA). Both utilities embraced common principles in their deployments which make them more than just the installation of another battery.
Today’s energy system is transitioning from the traditional electrical grid into a distributed, dynamic energy network. With the rapid integration of distributed energy resources (DERs) at the grid edge, supply and demand are becoming increasingly intermittent and in need of strategic control. In a transformed power system, the key to balance is harnessing data to flex with the ebb and flow of energy. Flexibility prompts reliable and affordable energy delivery, while meeting ever-rising customer expectations and regulatory mandates.
Energy-as-a-Service puts the user of energy in control of how they manage energy within their organization by first letting them decide the services they need to achieve their goals, then outsourcing those services to a trusted energy integrator to execute the services with committed outcomes outlined in the services agreement. This webinar will explore the benefits of implementing a holistic energy program based on the EaaS model.
The UK has largely been governed by EU legislation for the past 20 years. However, with the vote in June to leave the EU, the UK could now have the freedom to vary its energy policy while the EU has to also consider its own path foward
NRG experts from two aspects of the company’s expanding Business Solutions business will show how a variety of solutions are empowering customers and leading them to better energy approaches. In many cases, these blended solutions incorporate a range of technologies, tools and knowledge – all coming together to deliver efficiency, cost-savings, reliability and sustainability.
Evolving feature, code, safety and grid requirements have driven increased use of distributed PV electronics solutions in the commercial and residential markets. While these deliver performance and functional benefits, installers have seen a corresponding increase in equipment cost, solution complexity, and installation time. By delivering an unprecedented level of integration, the industry’s first cell-level distributed energy solution delivers the cost, performance and features for the next wave of PV market growth with the system simplicity of the past.
Join SolarEdge’s Director of Technical Marketing and Director of Marketing as we walk through initial case studies in advanced inverter testing with some of the nation’s top utilities for solar.
How can we coordinate DERs with centralized generation, in economically sustainable ways, to drive savings and enhance efficiency — to the mutual benefit of all entities involved? This is the question answered in this research and case-study driven webinar featuring San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) Chief Engineer Tom Bialek and GTM Research Director Ben Kellison.
Limited CapEx and OpEx budgets have become the new normal. The regulatory environment is shifting, vital equipment is aging and new devices (e.g., DERs) are coming online. All of these challenges must be managed, but how do you prioritize the risks? The ABB Automation and Power World digital conference, “Risk, reliability & recovery,” will take on some of the most pressing issues facing the industry today with a view toward how utilities can leverage technology to make the best choices. Register for this free virtual conference, taking place September 22, 2016, 11:00am-4:00pm EDT, to hear from industry experts and utility professionals about real- world solutions.
