Why Should you Attend the Summit:
RSC Summits are built on the foundation that great ideas and collaboration can occur when people with diverse expertise who may not work together on a daily basis, come together around a common challenge.
With the core focus on driving the integration of DERs into our energy ecosystems at the commercial, industrial, institutional facility and campus level and the larger grid infrastructure, you will walk away after two days with new knowledge gained on business and strategic operations and innovation, ideas sparked, and new collaborative relationships formed to support your respective organization.
As the opportunity for American leadership in climate innovation is vast, the Biden- Harris Administration is outlining key planks of an agenda including but not limited to:
-The National Building Performance Standards Coalition, announced by the White House on Jan. 21, 2022 to support over 300,000 buildings within the federal government portfolio including decarbonization goals which can be achieved through greater use of DERs
-The new National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program will allocate nearly $5 billion over the next five years to build and upgrade this essential infrastructure. An initial $615 million will be made available to states in Fiscal Year 2022
FERC order 2222 is helping to open wholesale markets to Distributed Resources
Critical facilities, from Military Installations to Hospitals, are turning to more onsite generation and storage to counter the increasing grid disruptions and to ensure resilient and reliable power.
C&I Facilities are increasing ESG goals and moving towards a decarbonized / net zero built environment. For many, the solution lies with integrating more onsite and offsite distributed generation and storage that is low carbon and sustainable.
Higher Education and large Institutional Campuses have long served as case studies towards onsite generation. As many move to increased levels of renewables, with some setting the benchmark at 100% renewable, along with the integration of EV charging, how will they manage these assets?
All these topics and more will be discussed and by joining us, you can engage in an interchange of ideas, expand your professional network of colleagues, customers, and clients with a diverse group, showcase your organizations innovations and walkaway with actionable takeaways.
2022 Summit Key Focus Areas to Include:
Innovations in Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS) to support greater DERs integration and how to connect new DERS to current systems
On site generation and storage for your facility: Best practices for integrating battery storage, building-integrated photovoltaics (PV),microgrids, EV charging stations and more
Microgrids: capabilities for industrial and supply chain facilities, DoD installations, healthcare facilities, EV charging and the grid
Grid connection capacity management and market access : what does the underlying control and communication systems need to include? What do you need to know about VPPs?
DERMS and supporting digital capabilities for managing DERs behind and in front of the meter: Supporting advanced data analytics for optimizing DER management at the facility and grid level
Utility operational and business cases for integrating DERs in front of and behind the meter to meet customer demand: including current regulatory landscape
Innovations in microgrid controllers: intelligent software for load prediction, management and enabling optimal cooperation among DERS
Cyber security and resilience for IT/OT systems
Micro nuclear reactors, battery storage innovation and more!
AT OUR SUMMIT YOU WILL HAVE THE ABILITY TO:
Gain Education & Insight
For Large Energy Consumers in the Built Environment, you will walk away with knowledge gained towards how to improve your facilities’ energy efficiencies, resiliency and environmental sustainability through integrating DERs and microgrids.
For Utilities, you will gain insight towards evolving technologies, policy and procedure for supporting a distributed energy infrastructure for our Nation
For Industry, you will learn what your current and potential customers and partners need from you!
Meet new customers, partners and clients! The Summit is designed to bring together a diverse group of senior stakeholders from across the built environment, the grid, and industry solution providers who do not necessarily engage on a daily basis in order to build new professional networks and expand collaboration.
Ample Networking and Interactive Sessions allow all in attendance to interact in meaningful and beneficial ways throughout the Summit
Share your own insight and knowledge during our interactive sessions. Designed as an interactive ‘Town Hall’ forum, all attendees are encouraged to engage in dialogue and discussion with each other and the speakers during each session.
Industry: Sponsor, Exhibit or Attend in order to showcase your capabilities to a variety of potential customers and partners and help influence the path forward towards a connected and distributed energy ecosystem!
