2nd Annual Grid Modernization Forum @ Conference Chicago at University Center, Chicago, IL
Apr 3 – Apr 5 all-day

Grid Modernization Forum

 

The next-generation smart grid is one that leverages technology and business model innovation to deliver greater efficiency, cost control, reliability, and high-quality service flexibility to end users of all types. Together with advanced metering infrastructure, the grid of the future will employ cutting-edge advances in Big Data analytics, energy storage, power generation, IoT and M2M communications, cyber security and more to deliver a harmonized, distributed energy system that efficiently meets the growing requirement for clean, sustainable, and reliable energy across the service regions. Evaluating these technology innovations, determining which ones make sense within various business scenarios, and ensuring their seamless integration and interoperability is a top priority for energy providers.

Building on the success of the 2016 edition, the 2nd Annual Grid Modernization Forum, April 3-5, 2017 in Chicago, will closely examine lessons learned to date by industry leaders pushing the fronters of grid modernization and reliability. Key technology innovators and executives will come together to share perspectives on how best to leverage AMI investment, engage the customer, and take the smart grid to the next level. Case studies of improved network performance, resiliency, outage restoration, and distributed energy resource (DER) integration will be examined with an eye toward determining best practices and technology advances for today’s energy ecosystem. Like the 2016 edition, this will be a unique opportunity to network with top industry professionals who are leading the way toward effective grid modernization and the integrated, interoperable, resilient energy network of tomorrow.

Topics to be Addressed Include:

  • Case study best practices and strategies for enhancing grid reliability
  • Analyzing the NY REV initiative
  • Outage restoration advances
  • Managing and integrating distributed energy resources
  • Energy storage advances for improved grid performance and independence
  • Ensuring interoperability between key systems
  • Advanced communications networks and technologies for smart grid systems
  • Advanced grid sensing, measurement and control technologies
  • Energy storage and microgrids as a strategy for power resiliency and cost control
  • Integrating renewables while achieving grid stability and reliability
  • Enabling consumer choice while controlling costs and enhancing efficiency
  • Cyber and real-time response to disruptions
  • Design and grid modeling tools
  • Business cases and models for next-gen smart grid services
  • Recent regulatory and policy developments impacting grid modernization
  • And more

Agenda Topics

Changing fundamentals and the value of electricity

Transportation: do consumers want a transport transformation?

The rise of distributed energy and smarter energy management

kWh’s are growing harder to value as daily supply profiles are disrupted by close-to-zero marginal cost renewable energy. How will this fundamental change affect energy market players and regulators and what has been learnt in the most advanced markets?

How will changing consumer preferences, regulatory pressures and technology changes shape the automotive market in the next ten years? Will EVs take off or remain niche products? What will this mean for oil markets and electricity demand? Is the transport industry facing large scale disruption?

What is the state and what are the implications of retail rate reforms and the blurring of the boundary between transmission and distribution grids for distributed energy, energy storage applications, consumers and market players?
