Which Door to Distributed Storage in Wholesale Markets?

Room: Ballroom West
Date: Wednesday, February 14, 2018
Time: 1:30PM - 2:30PM EST

The conversation on distributed energy resource (DER) participation in wholesale markets has begun in earnest, with CAISO and NYISO leading the charge and discussions underway in PJM and ERCOT. At the same time, rules on demand response are changing, such as in ISO-NE and PJM, affecting the opportunities for load-modifying storage. And all of these conversations are awaiting action from FERC.

What are emerging as the key challenges for distributed storage in these market conversations?

In this breakout session, we will discuss the stakeholder processes in several markets, illuminate the key market design and policy issues pertinent to storage, and discuss whether a framework of distributed energy resources generally works for distributed storage in particular.
