Title: Towards an efficient and resilient energy eco-system
Location: CWRU, White Bldg., Room 411
Nearly 20 years after the power industry had been mandated by FERC to introduce wholesale competition, changes continue in the power industry and beyond. This presentation discusses underlying global drivers that are propelling the changes now and into the future. It considers. for example, the growth of renewable and distributed energy resources (DER), such as demand resource (DR), distributed generation (DG), Solar/PV, and energy storage (ES). They can transform electricity generation, delivery, storage, and consumption into value-based business framework consisting of service transactions across multiple energy-oriented entities. To facilitate discussions during the presentation, basic concepts in power system operation and electricity market operation will be presented first, and conclude with an overview of major areas of R&D to support the profound industry transformation.
