WCEE’s Lunch & Learn Series presents

Energy Storage Financing and Regulation

 

Continued expansion of renewable energy has also increased interest in new energy storage technologies and expanding the use of existing storage technologies. More storage capacity can help better integrate cleaner energy production into our grid and help bridge short-term mismatches between supply and demand.

Join WCEE to hear from energy finance and regulatory lawyers Rabeha Kamaluddin and April Kim of Greenburg Traurig about financing challenges for energy storage systems and the status of energy storage regulation.

The speakers will discuss the drivers behind the boom, contract structures, construction risks, and solutions that promote bankability. They will also provide an overview of current regulation of energy storage and discuss participation of these resources in the regulated wholesale electricity markets across the United States. Independent system operators/regional transmission organizations have proposed different approaches to managing energy storage impacting how energy storage assets may earn revenues, and the operational characteristics of the services energy storage provide that significantly impact system design, configuration, and operation. Our speakers will offer forward-looking insights on the changing landscape for energy storage and avenues to engage in the development and modification of such rules.
