Regulatory and Market Innovations to Open the Solar + Storage Marketplace

In the second quarter of 2017, 32 megawatt-hours of grid-interactive behind-the-meter energy storage capacity were deployed across the United States. This is the most grid-interactive behind-the-meter energy storage ever deployed in a single quarter. The increasing penetration of energy storage presents a paradigm shift on many levels – regulatory, business models and grid integration.

In this webinar we will discuss:

  • Background and impact of recent Hawaiian Public Utilities Commission approval of Smart Export and Customer-Grid Supply Plus;

  • California Rule 21 Smart Inverter Requirements and Impact on distributed solar installations;

  • Infrastructure requirements beyond LAN and WAN to enable smart grids;

  • Emerging energy business models such as peer-to-peer energy trading and Energy-as-a-Service (EaaS)

  • Use of emerging technologies (e.g. Blockchain) to enable new energy business models;

  • SEIA’s leadership in standardizing distributed Solar and Energy Storage contracts to enable scaling and reduce financing costs.
