On September 17, 2020, FERC issued Order 2222, which removes regulatory barriers to aggregation of distributed energy resources (DERs) in wholesale electricity markets. Energy storage is increasingly located in households and businesses on local electric grids , and often is integrated with distributed generation and controllable loads. Enabling these flexible resources to participate together as “virtual power plants” (VPPs) in wholesale markets can enhance grid reliability and resilience while helping to lower costs for consumers. By augmenting and diversifying the supply of energy in wholesale markets, Order 2222 will encourage competition and innovation and give DERs the opportunity to earn additional revenue that reflects the value of services provided.
Like most major FERC actions, however, the arrival of Order 2222 spawns a number of questions relating to near-term implementation and eventual impacts.
This webinar will explore the real-world implications of Order 2222 from the perspective of different participants in the evolving grid. These include insights from companies that operate or aggregate DERs, including storage; experts on RTO implementation issues and market operations; and distribution utilities that host DERs and would have to accommodate the presence of virtual power plants interacting with wholesale markets.
