Feb 1 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

SUNY Best is Binghamton’s top networking organization that supports ongoing exchange of professional knowledge and experience throughout the Southern Tier.

This event is open to the public.

This month will be based on Clean Energy with Speaker Dr. William Acker. Energy storage is a key enabling technology to achieve renewable energy goals, improve the efficiency of the electric grid, and increase grid resilience. Opening the electric grid market to energy storage requires new market rules and programs to appropriately compensate services provided by energy storage and New York State’s Reforming the Energy Vision is taking important steps to open these markets. Dr. Acker will discuss the State’s effort to establish a statewide goal for energy storage in New York and the roadmap to achieve that goal. He will share insights on specific areas where the market opportunities for storage are being developed in New York, including (1) Non- Wires Alternatives programs offered through investor owned utilities seeking alternatives to traditional utility equipment investments; (2) The Value of DER tariff to compensate services provided by storage and (3) Stateled efforts to reduce energy storage deployment soft costs including permitting and siting, customer acquisition and business models.
