Chairman Tom Tansy to Speak at DistribuTECH

The SunSpec Alliance’s Chairman Tom Tansy will speak on the DER and Renewables Integration Track: Energy Storage: Technologies, Operations and Value Propositions panel at the DistribuTECH Conference and Exhibition in San Antonio, Texas on January 29, 2014.  The Alliance believes distributed energy storage is a critical component to the market growth of renewables.  DistribuTECH is an exciting opportunity for industry leaders across the country to learn more about the innovative work being done on storage systems and software architecture.
More about the panel:
Energy storage has large potential benefits, but also significant barriers. Current energy storage system (ESS) offerings are solution specific, expensive and are not modular, interoperable or scalable. Interoperability, different revenue streams and business models must be integrated to make energy storage feasible. This panel covers two main installations: The MESA Project in which Snohomish County PUD and leading battery, power conversion and software suppliers are deploying a 1-MW MESA-based ESS at a Snohomish PUD distribution substation; and KCP&L’s SmartGrid Demonstration Program that uses an advanced, grid-connected, 1 MWh battery ESS.
