April 9, 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 that impact the ability of many players to develop profitable business cases and models as well as the prospects for technology solutions for many of today’s most vexing problems.

Cristin Lyons, partner and transmission, distribution, and Smart Grid practice leader at ScottMadden, will serve as the Summit’s Day 1 Chair.

“The transformation of the electric grid to accommodate a changing resource mix, integrate alternative resources, and more efficiently serve customers is the fundamental challenge facing utilities today. They face this challenge standing side-by-side with alternative resource providers, regulators, and customers as the needs and wants of all the parties continue to evolve. This conference will provide a forum to discuss what is working, what remains difficult, and how these entities may work together to continue to provide reliable and reasonably priced electricity,” said Mrs. Lyons.

Interested parties who have not already registered for the summit are eligible to receive a special 15% discount off 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.
