Webinar: Hybrid Market Participation Rules: Recent Developments and Implications

Original Webinar Date/Time:

Wednesday, January 19, 2021
1:00 – 2:00 PM ET / 10:00 AM PT – 11:00 AM PT

The rapid and growing emergence of hybrid projects – particularly the DC-coupling of energy storage with PV or wind – has spawned substantial debate on the appropriate rules for their participation in wholesale electric markets.  Two regions are finalizing rules for hybrid development that take different approaches: Texas (ERCOT) and California (CAISO). While the implications of these rules will directly affect project revenues and operational strategies in these regions, these rules are also likely to influence the rules that other RTOs/ISOs institute for hybrid projects, creating important precedents for the entire storage industry.
This webinar will explain the similarities and differences of hybrid rules in CAISO and ERCOT, as well as explore their implications for the development and operation of storage projects in California, Texas, and other regions that follow in their footsteps. This webinar will be critical for developers, asset managers, and regulatory affairs professionals to get ahead of the curve on DC-coupling storage with generation.
In addition to ERCOT and CAISO experts from Customized Energy Solutions who have tracked the evolution of hybrid rules, we have a planner/operator from 8minute Solar Energy, a hybrid resource developer and owner with facilities in ERCOT and CAISO who will discuss the implications of these rules in those regions and across the country.
