2016 Rate Design Conference
September 19-20, 2016 | San Antonio, TX
EUCI’s Rate Design conference brings together the impact of changing regulation, increased renewables, and enabling technologies in a way that best illustrates their possible interactions and positive impacts. The conference will provide state-of-the-art perspectives, and best practices in innovative pricing, and the valuation of distributed resources operating in a modernized grid. Leaders in the utility rate design field — providers, regulators, and industry experts — will address these current industry topics, while also supporting the relationship-building and networking objectives of the attendees.
- Explore a variety of rate design options for addressing higher penetrations of distributed generation (DG)
- Examine how more distributed approaches to energy production and delivery are splintering the traditional monopoly utility model
- Evaluate time-based rates vs. demand charge rates
- Discuss how and why time-of-use (TOU) pricing is gaining interest in the electricity industry for business and residential customers
- Recognize rate design issues from the perspective of industry regulators
- Discuss the potential, unintended consequences of certain rate designs
- Interpret how new initiatives in various states such as E21 in Minnesota and REV in New York are influencing rate design
