Register Now My Meetings

In 2020, NCEP will explore the age-old utility question of “who pays?” with a new twist from grid modernization: “how?” The modern grid will allow for the exchange of more granular information on electricity use and supply across the distribution and transmission systems. State electricity policy decision-makers will explore:
• What is a state’s role in maintaining a well-managed, efficient electricity system, now with rapidly changing requirements and many more participants?
• How is value acknowledged and compensated among sellers, operators, and buyers? What risks are shared with customers?
• How can modern cost-benefit analysis, valuation approaches, and cost recovery plans be used to compare and optimize between bulk power system solutions and distribution system solutions?
• What capabilities exist and are needed for potential distribution-system level markets, and TSO & DSO coordination?

Session concepts include:
• Operational considerations for distribution-level markets
• Exploring optimization through benefit-cost analysis
• A future with customer-level markets
• Intersections of regional markets and state policies
