How can utilities and regulators maintain equity among customers with widely differing situations?

“The issue of cross subsidization between customer classes is not a new debate. However, the innovations with distributed energy resources and technological developments of the integrated grid and energy system of the future, including energy storage behind the meter and at utility plants, have resulted in innovative programs and regulations to assure fair allocation of costs and value of grid services provided by and used by customers.”

The presentation “How can utilities and regulators maintain equity among customers with widely differing situations?” will address recent developments in Hawaii and the U.S. regarding community based renewable tariffs, the first dispatchable solar and storage peaker plants in the world, and demand response time of use rates incentivizing installation and usage of customer sited storage to provide ancillary services to the grid.

You can meet Lorraine H. Akiba, Commissioner, Public Utilities Commission (Hawaii) at the 4th Residential Energy Storage Forum in Berlin on May 8th, at 11:50am

If you want to know more about this and other topics directly from end users of energy storage technologies join us at one of these annual events: The Energy Storage World Forum (Grid Scale Applications), or The Residential Energy Storage Forum, or one of our Training Courses.
