Join Us for:
FERC Order 2222: Part Three - VC/Investor Panel 

Moderated by Eric Van Orden of Virtual Peaker
Featuring: Alison Myers of Buoyant Ventures, Mike Grenier of BlueOx Ventures, Elta Kolo of Huck Capital, and Daniel Velez-Lopez
Tuesday, September 13, 2022 | 12:30 to 1:30 pm ET

It’s been almost two years since FERC approved Order 2222 requiring RTOs & ISOs to figure out how to give DERs access to wholesale energy markets. Now, the first RTOs and ISOs are starting to review their regional plans. These discussions are prompting utilities to consider the implications of DER aggregation on their businesses, including the role of utilities in enabling local customer programs to aggregate DERs to provide load modifying grid services, or other system benefits, that can accrue to all customers.

This moderated discussion will include perspectives from four different experts in the cleantech/climate tech investment community. The discussion will revolve around energy industry innovation, business models, value streams and customer experience, as it relates to FERC 2222 and DERs over the next few years. This session may be relevant for early stage companies thinking about gaps and opportunities in the market, as well as utilities and other practitioners thinking ahead about where start-up funding is headed to build innovative cleantech solutions in years to come.
