Upcoming Webinars and Events for CESA https://www.cesa.org/webinars/ Massachusetts' Municipal Utility Energy Storage Projects: Examples from Sterling, Templeton, and Wakefield https://www.cesa.org/webinars/massachusetts-municipal-utility-energy-storage-projects/?date=2019-06-25 <p>Join the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) for a free webinar with three Massachusetts municipal utilities that are using energy storage to reduce costs and provide other benefits to their customers. Representatives of the Sterling Municipal Light Department, the Templeton Municipal Light &amp; Water Department, and the Wakefield Municipal Gas &amp; Light Department will discuss their energy storage systems, explain their financial and other benefits, and offer lessons learned from designing and dispatching the battery systems.<br> <br>Sterling recently announced $1 million in savings due to the use of their two batteries to control capacity and transmission costs. Templeton and Wakefield will each describe their new storage systems, their impetus for installing batteries, and early lessons learned from the design and construction process.</p><p><strong>Panelists:</strong></p><ul><li>Sean Hamilton, General Manager, Sterling Municipal Light Department</li> <li>John Driscoll, General Manager, Templeton Municipal Light &amp; Water Department</li> <li>Dave Polson, Engineering &amp; Operations Manager, Wakefield Municipal Gas &amp; Light Department</li> <li>Dr. Imre Gyuk, Director of Energy Storage Research, U.S. Department of Energy - Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability</li> <li>Todd Olinsky-Paul, Project Director, Clean Energy States Alliance (moderator) </li> <li>Val Stori, Project Director, Clean Energy States Alliance (moderator) </li> </ul><p>This webinar is a presentation of the <a href="https://www.cesa.org/projects/energy-storage-technology-advancement-partnership" target="_blank">Energy Storage Technology Advancement Partnership</a> (ESTAP).

How can EVs be best integrated into the grid so that they increase system reliability and reduce emissions? What would be the impacts on the grid of different scenarios for EV charging? <br><br>This webinar will explore these questions with presentations from Matteo Muratori (Engineer, Integrated Transportation and Energy Systems, National Renewable Energy Laboratory) and Chris Nelder (Manager, EV Grid Integration, Rocky Mountain Institute). It will be hosted by Warren Leon (Executive Director, CESA). <br> <br>This webinar is presented by the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA).  </p> Wed, 29 May 2019 16:12:39 -0400 https://www.cesa.org/webinars/evs-and-the-electricity-system/?date=2019-07-02
