In this session, Josh Hotvet will cover three major electric utility barriers to energy storage, as well as strategies for overcoming them. These include manufacturing, supply chain and cost challenges for lithium-ion batteries, the lengthy interconnection queue, and how the renewables industry can define energy storage facilities more appropriately to eliminate prohibitive tariffs. Attendees will walk away with an understanding of how to combat common barriers and how to redefine energy market rules that will effectively bring more clean power to market.
Josh will support this session with a real-world case study – how Agilitas Energy worked with Con Edison to finalize the largest non-wire solution project in New York City. By leveraging a use case, attendees will learn about these barriers and solutions in theory, as well as how they work in practice.
