Would deploying energy storage and/or other innovative technology alter business models and the utility of the future? We are experiencing significant changes in energy supply due to a number of factors, including the increased availability of natural gas; the growth in renewable, demand-side and storage technologies; and new environmental requirements. This lecture provides an overview of US federal regulation of public utilities, including rate revision, challenge process, and the landmark orders that shaped energy industries we have today.
Dr. Jessica Bian is a visionary leader and architect. She has spearheaded electric industry’s reliability metrics and grid risk assessment. She is currently with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Prior to FERC, she was the Director of Performance Analysis at the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC). As the 2014 recipient of the IEEE PES Wanda Reder Pioneer in Power Award, she have been an active PES volunteer and leader with diverse leadership experience from industry and a career spanning over 30 years. Under her leadership, a total of 18 industry-wide reliability indicators and three composite indices were established the first time to determine the reliability, adequacy, and associated risks to the interconnected North American bulk power system.
