How to navigate changing energy market rules for energy storage and renewables

About this event

The world’s energy markets are rapidly changing as the clean energy transition accelerates and more utility-scale storage systems come online. Bidding energy storage into electricity markets can deliver significant revenue for owners and operators of these assets.

However, market rule changes for storage and renewables can leave asset owners scrambling to understand and accurately react to these new rules in a timely manner – and failure to successfully navigate these changes can bring lost revenue, among other risks.

Join Alva Svoboda, Principal of Market Design Integration at PG&E, and Drew Skau, Principal Product Manager at Fluence, to dive into how the right partnerships, tools, and other essential strategies helped their teams successfully navigate recent rule changes that were implemented regarding the bidding of energy storage into the California Independent System Operator (CAISO).

Alva and Drew will provide essential lessons learned and key takeaways to help asset owners in energy markets across the world be prepared to navigate rule changes.

On this session, you will learn:

  • Best practices for navigating wholesale energy market bidding rule changes for energy storage and renewables
  • The challenges of manual bidding and the importance of selecting the right AI-powered optimization software to reduce risk and maximize revenue
  • How the right partnerships and open lines of communication can ease the process of navigating market bidding rule changes
