FERC NOPR on DER Aggregation

Monday, September 11
1:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Location: Mandalay Bay Ballroom L

Late last year FERC released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) that would require RTO and ISO’s to remove barriers to the participation of electric storage resources and distributed energy resource aggregations in the capacity, energy, and ancillary service markets. Now that FERC is back to a quorum, what should we expect? Is the republican majority more likely to advance these technologies or leave the status quo in place? Could this be the next legal battleground for traditional generators, similar to FERC Order No. 745?
