Comments Off on South Fork 100% Renewable Energy Energy Forum
The 2nd annual South Fork 100% Renewable Energy Forum will be held on Wednesday, June 28, 2017 from 12:30PM to 6:15PM at LTV in Wainscott. With both Southampton and East Hampton townships now aiming to meet community-wide electricity needs 100% with renewable energy sources, elected officials, energy experts and community stakeholders will be gathering to learn, discuss and plan for the energy transformation of Long Island’s South Fork.
New York State Smart Grid Consortium Executive Director, James Gallagher, will be chairing a Policy Solutions Panel featuring representatives from LIPA and NYSERDA, from 2:35-3:35 pm.
The event, organized by Renewable Energy Long Island and co-sponsored by the Towns of East Hampton and Southampton, is open to the public and free of charge but RSVPs are required as space is limited.
The Focus is Shifting to Implementation — Capture a Piece of the New York Clean Energy Market!
The focus for 2017 is squarely on the implementation of both the New York REV and the new Clean Energy Standard. With the recent value of D and the DSIP rulemakings, and roll out of CES procurement plans and rate-making orders expected over the next few months, the New York market is poised to jump forward. However, such a market transformation can only be sustained if a delicate balance is established between market participants that retains utility shareholder value while creating economic returns for investments in DERs and renewable energy projects, and enables the reliable operation of transactive energy markets.
The 3rd New York Energy Revolution Summit will bring together utility, distributed energy resource (DER) providers, renewable energy, storage and other stakeholders to discuss how to create development processes that are workable and projects that are viable.
Leading policy makers and energy industry executives will discuss:
The new tariff mechanisms and their role in defining value stacks for DERs
How the utility transition to DSPs is creating partnership opportunities
Creating a roadmap for dual participation in retail and wholesale markets
Integration of storage and other distributed assets
Investment flow and opportunities to gain funding from both public and private sources
How to best determine DERMs needs and procure systems and technologies
Do more than talk about electric evolution – create it at the Grid Evolution Summit. Be a part of the conversation as industry stakeholders determine how the electric sector will evolve, modernize the grid, and better integrate distributed energy resources.
The Grid Evolution Summit is unique because all electricity stakeholders are coming together to build the future of electricity. At the Summit, it’s not just talk – it’s action.
Discuss and debate the latest trends, issues, and business developments with industry influencers
Attend panel discussions, roundtables, case studies, and presentations on emerging best practices
Create and evaluate potential solutions to roadblocks preventing electric industry transformation
Tackle issues head-on through summit technical working group sessions
Connect with top business leaders and policymakers
Broaden your industry relationships through receptions and networking sessions
New York Energy Week: Fueling Industry Collaboration & Investment
Join us for the Opening Night of the Fifth Annual New York Energy Week. Energy’s most influential leaders come together in cross-sector collaboration to help drive forward our global energy economy. This year, the opening ceremony will feature Keynote talks from Jeffrey Sachs, the NYC Mayor’s Office, and Jigar Shah, among others.
This year, discussions will include topics such as Global Solar Demand and Solar Simplicity; the DER Roadmap and Electricity Markets; Building Wind Farms Offshore; Cybersecurity Standardization in the Energy Sector; The Hydrocarbon Economy; and Energy Efficiency.
Join us in kicking off the fifth anniversary of uniting the global energy community in one of the most vibrant cities in the world.
Energy Storage North America (ESNA) is the largest conference and expo for grid-connected energy storage in North America. With a focus on building the grid of the future, ESNA 2017 will bring together policymakers, utilities, commercial and industrial customers and storage industry stakeholders for energy storage site tours, networking, workshops, and learning sessions. ESNA 2017 will take place August 8-10 at the San Diego Convention Center.
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
