Today’s utility planning must evolve to address issues around rising distributed energy resource (DER) penetration and modernizing the grid. The updated paradigm — with battery energy storage systems — incorporates new business processes, software and data integration needs.
This webinar, presented by Holt Bradshaw, Executive Director of Strategy, Siemens Digital Grid, Francis Wang, Executive Director Transmission Business Management, NextEra Energy Resources and Chris Page, Director of Development & Strategy, Americas, Fluence will address the following issues that underscore the relevance and versatility provided by energy storage planning:
What conditions raised awareness at these utilities that change is needed?
What were the near-term priorities identified and what steps have been taken to adopt energy storage planning?
How have some utilities and customers worked together to form plans?
What’s the outcome of the energy storage planning process, and how does that differ from unenhanced, traditional IRP planning?
