9:00 AM - 10:15 AM: Transmission Solutions for the Problem of Bringing Offshore Wind

Hear from those at the forefront of developing meaningful transmission for the influx of offshore wind in the Northeast, helping states realize their zero-carbon generation goals, while increasing reliability of the grid.

Theodore Paradise, Senior Vice President Transmission Strategy and Counsel, Anbaric
Pauline Foley, Associate General Counsel, PJM

11:00 AM - 12:15 PM:  ​Northeast Updates on Tackling Fuel Security

In late 2018 –early 2019, PJM and ISO New England published fuel security analyses.  PJM concluded that while there is no imminent threat, fuel security is an important component of reliability and resilience – especially if multiple risks come to fruition.  PJM underscored the importance taking proactive measures to value fuel security attributes through competitive wholesale markets.  ISO New England’s study illustrated the number and duration of energy shortfalls that could occur during the winter period in 2024/2025 if certain conditions developed, which would require implementation of emergency procedures to maintain reliability.  This panel will focus on fuel security in New England and PJM with reaction and perspective on the unique issues.

Chantal Hendrzak, Exec. Dir. Of Applied Innovation and Market Evolution, PJM
Jeff Bentz, Director of Analysis, NESCOE

12:15 PM - 1:30 PM: Luncheon Keynote Speaker

bio_glick_highSpeaker: The Honorable Richard Glick, FERC Commissioner

Commissioner Richard Glick was nominated to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission by President Donald J. Trump in August 2017 and confirmed by the U.S. Senate on November 2, 2017. 

Before joining the Commission, Commissioner Glick was general counsel for the Democrats on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, serving as a senior policy advisor on numerous issues including electricity and renewable energy. 


1:30 PM - 2:15 PM: State Policies and the Markets: How the tension is playing out in PJM, NYISO and ISO-NE

Utilities traditionally construct new transmission and distribution facilities, in order to resolve constraints or meet changing needs.  As technology evolves, however, utilities have begun to explore using distributed energy resources, energy storage, energy efficiency, and demand response to solve the same or related problems.   The application of these technologies in the context of transmission and distribution planning has become known as non-wires alternatives (“NWAs”).   The regulatory landscape is still developing, and the panelists will address the many questions that remain.  For example, should utilities be required to consider NWAs when developing transmission or distribution construction plans?  Should utilities, particularly in deregulated markets, be permitted to own NWA infrastructure, and how should such infrastructure be functionalized?  If third parties are permitted to develop NWAs, what should the data sharing and procurement processes look like? 


3:00 PM - 4:00 PM: Natural Gas and Alternative Energy Panel: Future of Natural Gas and Alternative Energy in Northeast

With some NE utilities no longer hooking up new gas customers and challenges to new natural gas pipeline infrastructure building in the NE, what does the future look like for gas and renewables?  This panel will provide insights.
