Infocast, the leading business intelligence and networking events producer in the power industry, has announced the Grid Transformation Summit, scheduled on April 27–29, 2015 in New York, NY, the center of the groundbreaking initiative, Reforming the Energy Vision.
The evolution of the grid has already begun and distributed energy resources are creating both new demands on the grid and new opportunities to unlock system-wide efficiencies. The 21st century technological disruption has greatly impacted 20th century regulatory constructs and business models that must be transformed to enable utilities, customers and third party energy service providers to profit from the deployment of onsite power generation, microgrids and next-generation distributed energy systems and alternative transmission technologies.
Infocast has organized the Grid Transformation Summit to provide a platform to discuss the transforming regulatory policies, business models and grid technologies that are advancing the evolution of the grid. Speakers from the New York State Public Service Commission, Stoel Rives LLP, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Georgia Public Service Commission, Microsoft, Smart Wire Grid Inc., Edison Electric Institute, NRG Energy, GELI, Maryland Public Service Commission and more will be on-hand to address the emerging changes of the grid including: new business models for the utility of the future, integrating distributed energy assets and status and updates on game-changing regulatory reforms in New York, Hawaii and other states.
Attendees will have the opportunity to network with regulators, power industry leaders, and commercial energy managers along with distributed generation, energy storage and grid modernization technology vendors to discuss the path forward to a next-generation distributed energy system.
