It is estimated that the market for engineering services related to power generation, transmission, and distribution for ACEC member firms has grown to well over $5 billion per year.  This work is being driven by increasingly favorable economics due to technological advancement in renewables (particularly photovoltaics) and storage. 

Coupling these technologies with “smart grid” communication infrastructure enables “demand response” (DR) to shift transmission of power on the grid and usage from one time when it’s not useful to another time when it is needed immediately.  Additional drivers include heightened awareness of the need for “resiliency/grid stability” after Hurricane Sandy, anticipated Clean Air Act compliance requirements, and decommissioning of coal and nuclear facilities.

  • Particular emphasis will be placed on energy storage and photovoltaics including:
  • Photovoltaics: market size, growth drivers, cost, technology development
  • Energy storage: technologies, market potential for energy storage, technology bankability

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the state of the art economics and policy related to the use of photovoltaics, storage and grid stability
  • Hear projected future trends and opportunities in the energy field.
  • Hear the latest exciting news on carbon neutral ways to expand base load and peaking power of the grid in North American and worldwide.
This on-demand online class lasts 60 minutes and is worth 1.0 PDH (Professional Development Hour).
