EEI Future Scenarios Base Case: The transformation takes place, but the pace is slower, since utilities have neither policy incentives nor strong market demand. Economic Growth Base Case Rapid Deployment Policy Influence Policy Driven Market Driven Market Driven: Progress is limited to areas the market can pull forward without incentives, mandates or subsidies. Conditions are chaotic, with policies, regulations and standards varying widely by region. Policy Driven: Federal and state legislation and regulation creates powerful incentives and mandates. Utilities find themselves pinched as policymakers push changes without providing the money to pay for them. Rapid Development: Most disruptive and unpredictable scenario. The confusion of an Internet-style frenzy is counterbalanced somewhat by standards and guidelines from policymakers and regulators. Utilities have the most opportunities in this scenario…but also the most risks. Source: EEI Smart Technology Scenario Workshops

Policy is Spurring DER Adoption Combined with accelerating improvements in DER technology price & performance are creating opportunities for electric system efficiencies 2011 US State Renewable Policy Source: EIA 2010 US State EE Policy Source: ACEEE Over 80% of US population under the equivalent of EU’s 20/20/20 Plan 4

Policy is Spurring DG Adoption 43 states with net metering tariffs + 17 states with distributed generation mandates + White House goal of 122 GWs of CHP by 2020 2012 US State Net Metering Policy Source: DoE EERE Sources: SEPA, DoE, USCHP, McKinsey 322 GWs Solar + CHP 100,000 Distribution circuits (20% of US total) = 3.2 MWs/circuit

DG is not just for Asia, Europe & California Solar PV is already more concentrated in Northeast and will expand into Texas and across the sunbelt over this decade as costs decline and retail rates rise More than 1.2 million solar PV panels installed by the top 20 corporate solar users in US Source: SEPA

Transactive Energy

Evolving Energy Ecosystem Convergence of Four Key Networks

Conceptual View of Customer Energy Related Transactions Occurring Today

Multiple DER Constituents Transactive systems & platforms must be able to reconcile multi-party objectives & constraints related to the same distributed resource Objectives & Goals Decision Criteria & Processes Constraints Bulk Power System Energy Financial Services Distribution Operations Customer Energy Provider Energy Devices Energy Related Services Value Perception Economic Utility Willingness & Ability

Transactive Energy Refers to techniques for managing the generation, consumption or flow of electric power within an electric power system through the use of economic or market based constructs while considering grid reliability constraints. The term “transactive” comes from considering that decisions are made based on a value. These decisions may be analogous to or literally economic transactions. Transactive Energy Workshop Proceedings 2012, prepared by the GridWise® Architecture Council, March 2012, PNNL-SA-90082 (

Value Creation thru Differentiated Services 22 Services that DER can provide with proper structuring and pricing Optimize energy & carbon costs Source: SCE

Unlocking Latent DER – Pricing Structure Matters Value Realization Requires Satisfying Multi-Party Requirements   Traditional “best efforts” programs are not effective for most grid operations – need new approach Adapt Quality of Service Concept:  Availability (On/Off or Will be)  Guarantees (Firmness)  Auditability (Measurement & Verification)    Use of forward pricing structures to balance customer needs for comfort and convenience while providing firm resources for grid operations Differentiated services may be bundled to keep pricing simple – “good enough” is fine Forward pricing structures also enable customer side investments in enabling technology

Engineering-Economic Based Grid Controls  Transactive Energy framework is focused on the convergence of multi-party business and operational objectives and constraints  Not just markets, but also a broader integrated cyber-physical control system to ensure reliable electric services  Not simply “Prices to Devices”, but coordinated and federated engineeringeconomic signals aligned to differentiated services across a broad time range Transactive Energy Markets T&D Grid Operations Customer

Investment Challenges & Strategies

Resilience & Reliability $675 billion in distribution investment thru 2030 provides opportunity for grid modernization to improve reliability and resiliency – challenge is rate impact Utilities reported average duration and average frequency of power interruptions has been increasing over the past 10 years at a rate of approximately 2% annually.
