Unlocking a GEBs Future: Accelerating Coordinated Utility Programs: A Practitioners’ Perspectives Series Part 3

Grid-interactive efficient buildings (GEBs) are a key component of our transition to a carbon-free energy future. To help accelerate a GEBs future, building energy programs will need to transition to better integrate conservation and active management of electricity in buildings for the direct or indirect provision of grid services. A recent SEPA report Accelerating Coordinated Utility Programs for GEBs: Practitioners’ Perspectives, supported by LBNL/DOE, examines the barriers and potential solutions to this building energy program transition by gathering insights from utilities, other program administrators, technology solution providers, and regulators about energy program business models, regulatory frameworks, and key learnings. 

This webinar featured a focus on practitioner perspectives from regulators and policy makers. 

The audience will learn:

  • Overview of project and diverse stakeholder perspectives
  • Key study findings on the challenges of transitioning to coordinated utility programs
  • Key solution strategies to accelerate implementation and unlock a GEBs future

Moderator:
Kate Strickland, Manager, Regulatory and Business Innovation, SEPA

Panelists:
Ann Rendahl, Commissioner, Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission
Jocelyn Durkay, Manager of Regulatory Affairs, Colorado Energy Office
