COMMUNITY CHOICE ENERGY: BEST PRACTICES, LESSONS LEARNED & INTEGRATION OF DISTRIBUTED ENERGY RESOURCES
Presented by: Samuel Golding, Community Choice Partners
Community Choice energy agencies in California continue to develop in sophistication, including in terms of Distributed Energy programs and capabilities. This webinar will profile some of the leading agencies’ recent activities — both those that have been operating for years and those implementing advanced program designs prior to launch — and summarize the best practices and lessons learned in terms of:
– Use of at-risk fee structures
– Contracting pitfalls to avoid
– Emerging awareness of consumer protections
– Advanced back office capabilities in CCA program design
– Integration of dispatchable Distributed Energy into CCA power portfolios
– Active development of microgrids and Electric Vehicle charging networks
– Opportunities to offset transmission and distribution upgrades – And more!
About the Presenter
