Description

Friday, September 7th Western Regional Partnership (WRP) Energy Committee webinar on current regional energy market trends and options within the WRP Region. This webinar will run from 10:30 to 11:30 am Pacific.

The ability to forecast load and adjust supply rapidly has become increasingly important as more variable types of generation, such as wind and solar, represent a greater portion of regional generation. This highlights the need for continued planning coordination among multiple entities and creates opportunities for new market structures in the West, such as an Energy Imbalance Market (EIM). An EIM is intended to allow participants such as Balancing Authorities and utilities to ensure generation meets demand with diverse resources across a wider footprint.  

Keynote speakers will be:

  • Stacey Crowley, Vice President of Regional and Federal Affairs, California Independent System Operator
  • Daniel Kline, Director of Transmission and Engineering Services, Black Hills Energy (Black Hills Energy participates in Mountain West Transmission Group)
  • Carl Monroe, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer, Southwest Power Pool
