The Energy Futures Academy extends its thanks to the moderator and panelists:
California is the 5th largest economy in the world. Thus, it has large electrical demand and supply requirements. Those supplies and demands are representative of the modern, transforming grid: variable, increasingly decentralized and in need of new software controls between the System Operator and the myriad energy resources behind and in front of the meter.
“Collectively, our organizations want to be clear about one factor that did not cause the rotating outage: California’s commitment to clean energy,” said the California System Operator, the Public Utilities Commission, and the Energy Commission to California Governor Newsom.
The August 2020 rolling blackouts within the control area of the California System Operator (CAISO) represent a challenge and opportunity for the Demand Response (DR) industry. This webinar hopes to unlock some of the solutions required in the short- and long-term to address these blackouts and improve grid stability.
Mass adoption of DR solutions requires improved interoperability with the grid operator, convenient end-user enrollment and incentives, legislative and regulatory reform, and an open communication layer between integrators, utility beneficiaries, and the grid operator.
The San Diego Energy District
is pleased to sponsor this webinar and introduce our newest program.
San Diego Energy District has a Goal:
Transition all gas plants off natural gas by 2030.
Reimagine a gas plant as both a producer and consumer of local and distributed energy.
- Consumes surplus energy on the grid from renewables.
- Produces hydrogen gas on-site and stores it in high-density tanks.
- Charges electric vehicles and commercial transport on-site.
- Generates electricity from carbon-neutral gas such as hydrogen and bio-methane.
- Distributes excess heat for reuse.
A reimagined power plant is fossil-fuel free.
FFREE is short for fossil-fuel free.
Join us in 2021 and beyond to build a regulatory and technical roadmap within the Energy Futures Academy of the San Diego Energy District.
In 2021, the Energy Futures Academy will articulate a future of power plants that transition from natural gas to alternative fuels such as hydrogen. Fossil Fuel Free is represented by our trade name, FFREE.
