The Value of Dispatchability: Unleashing Grid Flexible Solar

28th February 2019  02:00 PM - 03:00 PM (GMT-04:00) America/New_York

Join us as we investigate how solar can provide additional value to the power grid by using solar generation to contribute flexibility services that help keep the system balanced. Our speakers will share highlights and impacts from a report by Tampa Electric Company (TECO), First Solar and E3 that models dispatching utility-scale solar resources in a similar manner as conventional units.  This webinar will explore TECO’s vision for utility-scale solar, how these projects address regulatory hurdles for cost recovery and the thinking behind their desire to leverage solar as a dispatchable resource. In addition, our panel of experts will also share how to leverage these capabilities in future procurement processes, and how different contract structures and business models best position utility-scale solar to act in a dispatchable manner.
