Nov. 6, 2013: Defining the Living Pilot Workshop
What: Defining the Living Pilot: Symposium of Ideas
When: Nov. 6, 2013, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
Where: CPUC Auditorium, 505 Van Ness Ave., San Francisco; also available in real-time and archived thereafter via video webcast
Details: The purpose of this workshop is to develop ideas for maximizing development of alternative environmentally friendly resources – preferred resources – such as Energy Efficiency, Demand Response, Energy Storage, and any other ideas that may be forthcoming to meet Local Capacity Requirements in south Orange County (specifically, in the areas served from the Johanna and Santiago substations). These ideas could be included in the Living Pilot program proposed by the Southern California Edison (SCE). Such resources are to increase SCE’s ability to replace the gap created by the retirement of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station and the retirement of Once-Through-Cooling power plants and to manage the typical annual increase of 25 megawatts of load at the two substations without building new conventional generation.
Hoped for Outcome: Ideas that inform the CPUC, SCE, and the public regarding a potential application or other regulatory process to implement the Living Pilot program.
Information for Presenters
Presenters should be prepared to speak to the issues that are most important for moving forward, such as:
- How will a specific proposal or idea help to reduce demand or otherwise stabilize the grid;
- How soon it could begin to be available;
- What kinds of information would be required to go forward; and,
- What barriers might prevent it from going forward or being effective.
