OPENING CEREMONY: Achieving the Next Generation Electric System: Enabling the Transition to a Dynamic Energy Future
Limited Capacity filling up

Achieving the Next Generation Electric Utility: Enabling the Transition to a Dynamic Energy Future

In light of recent changes in policy, regulation and technology, it is envisioned that the electric power sector will become more customer-centric, cleaner, distributed, and cost effective in the near future. To achieve this will require an evolution in the roles and involvement of multiple industry stakeholders, including customers, vendors, utilities, and investors. This panel will examine the evolution of the next generation utility as well as explore other industry transformations in policy and finance which are allowing third-parties to play an increasingly larger role in this transformation.

This event will explore:

  • Key drivers influencing change in the energy industry and electric power system
  • Opportunities that will exist in the future for customers to become engaged and better manage their energy use and costs
  • The historical role of electric utilities and how this role may evolve over time as the market for third-party goods and services expands 
  • Key lessons learned from the regulatory and market reforms currently underway in New York and other jurisdictions
  • The roadmap and timeline for change

ENERKNOL-RTO PANEL ON ISO MARKETS: How Will the Organized Electric Markets Evolve to Support the Future Grid?
Limited Capacity filling up
This event is exclusively for invited guests and registered NYEW All-Access Pass holders.

RTOs and ISOs have expanded their footprints over the last two decades and now serve two-thirds of electric consumers in the United States and more than half of those in Canada. But the scale economies that have fueled this growth face challenges from distributed energy resources at the same time as their wholesale markets are being stressed by generation subsidies and the Clean Power Plan. The CEOs of ISO-NE and NYISO will discuss these challenges along with a former FERC and state commissioner now advising utilities and investors.

  • Eliminating Market and Operational Barriers to New Technologies — As the one-way electric grid evolves into an intelligent two-way platform, RTOs and other policy makers will face challenges in incorporating these changes into existing regulatory and market frameworks. RTOs have proven they can accommodate variable wind and solar generation with better forecasts, new technologies, ample transmission and flexible firming generation. Electric storage and other distributed energy resources are posing new challenges, from how they should be defined to how they should be compensated. How are RTOs and utilities preparing? Does the recently-released NY REV 2 order provide some guidance for the path forward?

  • Challenges to the RTO/ISO Model — Wholesale markets have shown they can cultivate the growth of clean power (e.g., RGGI), and capacity markets have managed market entry and exit while meeting adequacy requirements. Still, some question whether the markets are sending appropriate price signals to promote the construction of new generation and retention of existing resources, prompting calls for subsidies that a recent PJM analysis said could disrupt market fundamentals. MISO is currently wrestling with whether to change its capacity auction in competitive retail region in southern Illinois. Meanwhile, the recently-passed Senate energy bill could put pressure on regions to tighten capacity rules, as PJM and ISO-NE have done, in a way that could discourage demand response and renewable generation. And even after the Supreme Court’s EPSA and CPV rulings, it’s only a matter of time before the next legal challenge over state-federal jurisdiction as the energy landscape evolves to incorporate new technologies and networked operations. 

RTO Insider and EnerKnol have teamed up to integrate on-the-ground coverage of the organized electric markets with real-time electronic access to the policies and filings that drive them. Join the conversation as we launch our integrated SaaS Platform and investigate these and other issues shared by ISOs/RTOs and members of industry.

ENERGY-SUPPLY FUTURE FOR BUILDINGS
Limited Capacity filling up

Intelligent energy supply for new and existing buildings will require a nexus of efficient, smart energy management with evolving supply infrastructure critical to NYC and other cities.  This includes traditional supply, renewables, onsite energy supply, and grid interoperability to reliably manage a portfolio of resources for buildings and campuses. 
Various considerations will need to be addressed in order to transition from prior electric and gas supply business models for large customers and for utilities.  Issues such as onsite supply, back up resources, network integration, reliability, economics, and overall grid efficiency are at task. 
What actions and policies will stakeholders need to take on to be successful in this evolving energy supply and building management world?

Workshop-2 Energy Retrofitting: Model & Data Driven Approaches
Limited Capacity full
This event is exclusively for invited guests and registered NYEW All-Access Pass holders.
This workshop will give participants insights into new model, and data driven approaches to energy retrofitting of buildings. Through the access to better data, retrofits with the highest cost-effectiveness can be identified and evaluated. Experts will present new research on daylight renovation as a retrofitting strategy and innovations within sustainable building materials. This workshop will take a hands-on approach to the tools and challenges within this field, and combine with an update on how industry leaders and public authorities in New York and Denmark have implemented these new approaches.
 Part I will focus on model and data driven approaches to building energy efficiency.
 Part II will dive into deep energy retrofitting, including application of sustainable building materials.

LED LIGHTING SHOWROOM WORKSHOP & RECEPTION
Limited Capacity filling up

Join Energy Focus, the exclusive tubular LED partner of the USGBC and a leader in military lighting retrofit for an eventful, knowledgeable, and lighthearted afternoon program at the Empire State Building.  During this official New York Energy Week LED technology tour and reception with Energy Focus, the latest industry trend will be put on display where the focus will feature the mechanics of LED technology and much beyond.

1:30PM – 2:00PM - Registration
Registration and light bites provided by Energy Focus. Arrive on time to maximize networking!

2:00PM – 2:45PM - Military & NASA LED R&D – "How It All Started and Where It Is Going"
When the U.S. Navy and NASA approached Energy Focus on the R&D of alternative energy efficient lighting sources, not only were awarded the DARPA contract but from there, also gained great insight on the impact of LED lighting on energy efficiency.

2:45PM – 3:30PM - Mechanics of Today's LED – "See the Gut of Quality"
Constantly at the forefront of pushing the barriers on industry standards and regulations: our best-in-class TLEDs ranges from 120lm/W to 150lm/W with more performance values added including flicker-free and effective heat dissipation circuitry. This all contributes to a well-designed system that operates great thermal management that results in a much longer product lifetime

3:30PM – 4:15PM – Healthy Lighting – "The Shocking Discovery of Lighting and Health"
Even though you don’t see it, both fluorescents and most LED lights flicker at rates that seem imperceptible to the eye. The brain has simply taught the eye to code the signal as continuous. Nevertheless, this flickering does exist and has been scientifically proven to cause headaches and learning disabilities.

4:15PM – 6:00PM – Happy Hour Reception

- Product demonstrations (hands on and videos)
- Research result presentations and videos
- Light bites and beverages
- Eventful afternoon with industry experts on lighting, health, and building designs
