California’s energy storage market is poised to grow at a rate unprecedented in the United States, and industry players are gearing up to seize this upcoming opportunity. Under California’s AB 2514, the state’s investor-owned utilities must procure 1.3 gigawatts of energy storage between 2014 and 2020. The first Requests for Offers for procurement under this program will be released in December of 2014. In addition, Southern California Edison is already in the process of procuring a minimum of 50 MW of energy storage resources as part of its Local Capacity Requirements RFO issued last December. How much new energy storage do the IOUs intend to procure? What kinds of projects will be eligible? How will storage project owners be compensated for the differing services they provide to utilities, the CAISO, and retail customers? What do developers, innovators and investors need to know about this new market?

This webinar will explore the burgeoning energy storage market in California and seek to address these questions. The panel will bring together a California utility representative actively involved in current energy storage procurement and the development of the 2014 RFO, energy storage developers and innovators, and regulatory and project development practitioners. The webinar will begin with a brief review of the California Public Utilities Commission’s energy storage framework decision and an update on what the IOUs have made public about procurement plans and the upcoming RFOs thus far. From there, the presenters will discuss open questions about the RFOs, their perspectives on the storage opportunity, and implications for the energy storage industry beyond California.

Single Connection: $99.00
Additional Connection at the same Organization: $50.00

A site connection allows a single connection to the web conference. That connection is open to any number of users in a collaborative setting. Because there are no travel expenses and only a single registration fee is required, each additional participant lowers the cost per participant significantly.

By purchasing a site connection, you can invite as many people as you would like to view and participate in the session from a single location. Set up the session in a conference room and project the presentation and chat on a large screen. You also have rights to distribute copies of the presentation materials to everyone involved. Please note that audio is received via the phone line and must be broadcast to your group.

If for any reason a relevant stakeholder cannot co-locate for the session, we encourage you to include that person by purchasing an additional connection at the reduced fee of $50 per session. This will ensure that every member of a team receives the same relevant, timely information in the most efficient way. If you have any technical or purchasing questions, please contact us at (818) 888-4444.

Should you be unable to attend, a refund, less a $50 administrative charge, will be made for cancellations received via letter or fax at least 3 working days before the event.

However, we will be pleased to transfer your registration to another member of your company or credit the registration fee to another Infocast conference if you register within 6 months from the date of this conference.
