Overcoming the issue of increasing renewables integration


The Utility Scale Flexible Power Summit aims to bring together the full spectrum of the United States utility sector, from investor owned utilities to local cooperatives, to explore options available to manage intermittency and maintain reliability.

This Utility conference will examine the issues currently limiting optimal generation and transmission, whilst exploring the potential of gas, demand response and future storage options in providing reliable energy delivery. The summit will provide the opportunity to network with permitting bodies, grid operators and financers, as well as companies providing the latest innovations in intermittency management.

Key topics to be addressed at the Utility Scale Flexible Power Summit:

  1. Policy developments in relation to improving transmission capacity

2. Project finance: Where is funding available?
