EUCI - Modeling the Value of Energy Storage - Anaheim, Ca

Several regulatory measures have been introduced in the past couple of years intended to spur the adoption of storage technologies. Even with these system drivers now in play, modeling the effects and benefits of storage is elusive. The intent of this seminar is to assist utilities, load-serving entities, IPPs and project developers in their efforts to accurately model the impact of storage on system resources and under specific operating conditions. It will also help these power-serving organizations determine which technologies best address the requirements established by the California PUC and other jurisdictional entities.
