Renewable Energy Grid Integration: Focus on Frequency Regulation and Response

3 Part Webinar Series
August 1, 2 and 3, 2017

Renewable Energy Grid Integration: Focus on Frequency Regulation and Response

Power systems are usually operated within strict frequency ranges and frequency regulation is mainly provided by the ramping up and/or down of generation assets. One technical issue for renewables is the difficulty in achieving the frequency stability of these systems because renewable energy sources in normal operation cannot provide frequency regulation.This webinar series will discuss solutions and strategies for solving frequency issues associated with renewable energy integration at high penetration levels.

Series Topics:

  • Update on FERC Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for Frequency Response
  • Renewable Energy Integration in ERCOT: Grid Code Requirements and Frequency Regulation
  • The Role of Battery Energy Storage for Frequency Response

Pipeline Emergency Management: 3-Part Webinar Series

3 Part Webseries
August 8, 9, and 10, 2017

Pipeline Emergency Management: 3-Part Webinar Series
No one wakes up in the morning planning on responding to an emergency on their pipeline system. However, emergencies can and will occur. It is not a matter of if, but rather when you will be faced with having to respond. In today’s world the expectations on the part of stakeholders such as regulatory officials, the public, and emergency responders are that pipeline operators have effective plans, well trained employees and the ability to effectively manage an incident.
This series dives into:
•The Incident Command System and how pipeline operators can use it to effectively manage an emergency and work with public sector responders
•Expectations of stakeholders related to the effectiveness of emergency response programs
•The need for effective, coherent and usable emergency plans that employees are trained in and can implement quickly when an emergency occurs
•Exercises that realistically test the effectiveness of plans and employee training and provide actionable results
•A philosophy that is routed in the foundation of a cyclical approach to emergency management

Renewable Energy Project Development: Contracting for Success

Multnomah Athletic Club
July 12, 2017
Portland, OR

Renewable Energy Project Development: Contracting for Success

Renewable energy continues to dominate as the leading source for new electric generation being developed. Contracting mis-steps are common to any medium or large infrastructure projects, yet there are some specific to renewable energy projects and related technologies, business models and policies. By identifying these issues early and thinking about how they play out in contract negotiations, stakeholders can tee up a successful project that is transaction cost-efficient while they avoid “tying their shoelaces together.”

This course will examine issues that are relevant to developing and financing a renewable energy project and that ultimately need to be solved via contracting arrangements including:
  • Project Economics
  • Cost / Risk Allocation
  • Parties
  • Land
  • Financing
  • Energy Regulation and Policy Incentives
  • Technology and other Regulatory Issues
For each of these topics, the instructors will frame relevant issues, highlight and examine pitfalls that cause cost overruns and delays or that stop a project in its tracks and then to consider proactive steps to set up a successful project. The course includes conceptual discussions, analysis of contractual arrangements and/or mapping out of deal structures.
