As more solar power comes online, the industry is challenged to provide affordable, efficient ways to meet peak demand in the evening as the sun goes down but demand is high (ie, alleviate the duck curve). But what is the magic energy storage duration? Join the webinar to hear thought leaders on this topic!

Panelists will discuss the nature and size of the issue, the economics of storage at different ranges, as well suggest how market design can shape the technologies selected and how using new methodologies could result in a more diverse energy storage sector that dispatches power during peak times more efficiently and at a lower cost to the ratepayer in a way that is most efficient.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Dr. Paul Denholm, National Renewable Energy Labs

  • Ray Hohenstein, Fluence

  • Zachary T. Smith, Manager of Capacity Market Design, NY-ISO

  • Alex Morris, California Energy Storage Alliance
