Brattle Principal Judy Chang will present at the Law Seminars International (LSI) 18th Annual Conference on Electric Power in California, taking place November 3-4, 2016 in Los Angeles, CA and also available via webcast.
The conference will provide an in-depth look into the changes taking place in California surrounding energy infrastructure, regulation, and markets. Topics to be discussed include: the future role of California's IOUs and how they could address the increasing prevalence of distributed energy resources; the roles of natural gas and energy storage in grid reliability; how and when California will get to 50 percent RPS and how renewable resources will be integrated onto the grid; and the opportunities and pitfalls in light of the 50% RPS, Net Energy Metering 2.0, competitive transmission siting, and a move towards a western ISO.
Ms. Chang will present on “The California Electricity Market of 2020 and Beyond.” Her presentation will cover the economic perspective on expansion of CAISO Energy Imbalance Market vs. a new ISO to replace CAISO and the WECC, and the impacts on regional resource adequacy levels and flexibility; migration to preferred resources; prices; and electric and ancillary service markets. Ms. Chang is a co-author of a recent study for the California ISO that examines the impacts of a regional power market in the Western U.S.
