The deployment of non-conventional renewables (NCR) has been seen as the best alternative to decarbonize the electricity sector because they are clean and had become more efficient. However, their intermittency poses a challenge for reliable energy. The solution may be found in a combination of NCR with storage, but since these technology costs are still high, in order for policy-makers to achieve their clean Energy goals there may be a need for further economic incentives. This Conference will be a Panel where we will discuss economic rules/incentives to attract/guarantee the necessary storage for different markets. In particular:

  • integration in day ahead and real time markets
  • markets for ancillary services
  • resource adequacy designs for storage (capacity mechanisms)

We will have a selected group of Panelists with large experience and knowledge on Power Markets Operation and Policy, including:

  • CAISO: Greg Cook, Executive Director, Market & Infrastructure Policy
  • Nord Pool: Christoph Grafe, Director, Market Integration UK & Ireland
  • AEMO: Farhad Billimoria, New Energy
  • IRENA: Francisco Boshell, Leader Innovation

Moderator: Cecilia Maya, XM

Interaction with panellists is encouraged during the Conference through the chat to exchange and enrich our vision on Storage.

We look forward to seeing you all at the Webinar!
