03/09/2016 - 15:30 to 17:00
3:30 pm to 5:00 pm

Energy storage technologies are receiving a great deal of attention and investment.  This second of two sessions will take a closer look at energy storage applications, business models, case examples, and project development considerations in the Northeast region and nationally. What technologies are being deployed now, under what business models, and what circumstances make sense technically and economically for your project? We will describe energy storage applications for grid support, peak shifting and load leveling, renewable energy integration, microgrids and resilience, and aggregations for demand response. We will consider how energy storage might apply to your projects, clients and communities, and explore value streams and business models for energy storage deployment including third party ownership and power purchase agreements.
