US DOE Energy Storage Regulatory Commission Seminar

US DOE Energy Storage Seminar
For Western Utility Regulatory Commission Staffs
November 6, 2017
Western Electricity Coordinating Council offices,
155 N 400 W, Second Floor
Salt Lake City, UT 84103
Welcome to the official site of the US DOE Energy Storage Seminar for Western Utility Regulatory Commissions.  Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is holding this project workshop at the offices of Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC). 
Within the US Department of Energy's (DOE) Energy Storage Program, PNNL is tasked with engaging with state regulatory agencies to identify policy barriers for energy storage deployments and develop analytical tools that these agencies can use to address these barriers.  At this workshop PNNL and DOE will present a review of the energy storage research and important trends.  This is an invitation-only seminar designed for Western US regulatory staff.

The agenda for the day-long seminar is composed of three elements: 1. reviewing each state's energy storage activities; 2. sharing the research work at DOE - technologies, valuation, regulatory models; and 3. discussing next steps for state needs and research programs.  PNNL intends to use feedback from seminar participants in designing future research objectives for the program in FY 2018 and beyond.
We look forward to your participation.  If you have any questions regarding the agenda or travel logistics please contact Rebecca O'Neil at or 503.490.8709.
