ScottMadden to Sponsor and Present at Grid Transformation Summit 2015

April 24, 2015

Transforming Regulatory Policies, Business Models, and Grid Technologies to Seize Profits from the Future Grid

ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, is proud to join industry thought leaders as a sponsor at Infocast’s Grid Transformation Summit 2015, being held April 27–29, 2015, at ONE UN New York. The summit will bring together national and state regulators; power industry leaders; commercial energy managers; DG; and energy storage and grid modernization technology vendors to discuss the path forward to a next generation distributed energy system. They will delve into potential solutions for regulatory hurdles impacting the ability of many players to develop profitable business cases and models. Summit participants will also examine the prospects for technology solutions to many of today’s most vexing problems with an evolving grid.

Michael Morley, manager at ScottMadden, will moderate the panel discussion, “Business Model and Policy Transformation—How Do Utilities Profitably Get into Distributed Solar, DG, and Microgrid Markets?” Mr. Morley stated, “Advances in technology have led to increased penetration of DG and more direct use. These changes to the marketplace, compounded with flat demand growth for many utilities, are driving a need for utilities to adapt by investing in distributed solar, DG, and microgrids. These types of investments are significantly different from those previously made by utilities and require new frameworks for evaluation and rules for regulation. This panel will discuss these opportunities and how different organizations are addressing them.”

Interested parties who have not already registered for the summit are eligible to receive a special 15% discountoff the conference registration fee, courtesy of ScottMadden. Registration with this preferred pricing can be done by accessing the registration formand using the discount code 150511.
