About the event

Stratton Report’s launch panel in Sacramento in January profiled a diverse cross-section of approaches to the emerging distribution grid with very high renewables penetration. 10 speakers assessed the three main “models” for grid ownership and operation – Utility-centric, Third-party-centric, and Customer-centric. In our second session, held in Silicon Valley, we will focus in on the “Customer-centric” side, with a presentation from California electric grid expert and pioneer Dr. Edward Cazalet. Cazalet’s company TeMix is currently engaged in a “Retail Automated Transactive Energy System (RATES)” pilot project with SoCalEdison and Universal Devices funded for $3.2 million by the California Energy Commission. Cazalet is a long-time thought leader in the California grid, formerly a Governor of CAISO, and the initial advocate of AB2514, Californa’s Storage Mandate bill.

“The CEC’s purpose for this Grant is to develop and pilot-test behind-the-meter load management systems, operational strategies, and retail tariff options that minimize the cost and complexity of customer participation in electricity markets, and engage participants from any customer sector, but focus on residential and small commercial customers. Universal Devices Inc. (UDI) and TeMix Inc were competitively awarded this grant for approximately $3.2 million for the period June 2016 to March, 2019. Non-financial support letters were provided by Southern California Edison (SCE), the California Independent System Operator (CASIO) and the OpenADR Alliance. UDI and TeMix will develop and pilot a retail transactive energy platform, automated end device controls, and an innovative two-way subscription tariff. The pilot is with about 200 SCE residential and small commercial customers. The transactive platform interfaces with the SCE distribution and energy service providers and the CAISO market.”
