Following up on E2Tech’s successful forum on the needs of and issues with the regional electricity grid – the “macrogrid” – E2Tech is pleased to present a discussion of distributed generation (DG) and “microgrids” in Maine. What resources are available to fuel these systems? What T&D rate structure changes will support grid investment and reflect long-term benefits of locating DG in areas of reliability concerns? Benefits may include enhanced cyber-security, increased renewable sources of electricity like wind and solar power, and even integration of electric vehicles onto the grid.
This forum offers an opportunity for collaboration among ISO-NE, state policymakers and regulators, energy companies, and others on operational, planning, and market implications of these non-transmission alternatives. Speakers will include:
-Steve Hinchman, GridSolar, LLC
-Laney Brown, Director, Smart Grid Planning & Programs, Iberdrola USA
-Dan Kelley, Vice President, Power Engineering, Woodard & Curran
-Erik Wilkinson, External Affairs, ISO New England
