NAATBatt 2019 Updates:

2019 Keynote Speaker Announced

The 2019 Keynote Speaker at NAATBatt 2019 will be Commissioner Andy Tobin of the Arizona Corporation Commission.  In 2018 Commissioner Tobin proposed adoption of a “Clean Peak Standard” in Arizona.  Under Commissioner Tobin’s proposal, utilities in Arizona would be required to obtain 80% of their electricity from renewables and nuclear by 2050, and deploy 3 GW of storage by 2030.  Commissioner Tobin’s proposal would require utilities to deliver an increasing portion of their renewable energy during peak electricity demand hours, incentivizing storage deployment. Join us at NAATBatt 2019 to hear about Commission Tobin’s proposal and his work on the Arizona Corporation Commission.  The “Clean Peak Standard” is one of the most innovative new ideas in electricity grid planning and may help redefine what “energy efficiency” means.  Learn about the impact that this redefinition may have on the energy storage industry.
