  7. 7. 14-17 Dec, 2014 Saudi Arabia-Jeddah 2014 Key State-Level Developments • New York’s Public Service Commission initiated a State-wide Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) process in April 2014 and might affect other states views on the role of the grid and the grid operator moving forward. New York • California’s new requirements for utilities to develop plans for achieving new energy storage targets and developing distribution resource plan to accommodate a greater percentage of distributed energy resources (DERs). California • Illinois Grid Modernization Act • Return-on-equity tied to reliability metrics including SAIFI and SAIDI • Metrics for elimination of estimated billing Illinois • Texas continues to lead in the implementation of deregulated retail services and in effectively integrating large-scale wind generation • ERCOT has an effort underway to “rethink” the entire existing set of ancillary services Texas • Increasing penetrations of rooftop solar have led to the need to focus on the modernization of the electric grid to be able to effectively integrate and utilize DERs. Hawaii Overall Need for Utilities to show ROI on Smart Grid Investments

  12. 12. 14-17 Dec, 2014 Saudi Arabia-Jeddah Utility Benefit Case Studies FPL’s smart grid has resulted in: • $3.4 million in productivity savings • average annual reduction of 4.3 million minutes of power interruptions • providing more than 99.98% service reliability Central Maine Power Company has: • reduced its meter operations costs by more than 80% with annualized savings of about $6.7 million • due largely to fewer service calls, resulting in about 1.4 million fewer annual vehicle miles traveled Bonneville Power Administration will use synchrophasor data on the 4,800-MW California-Oregon Intertie (COI) to: • Increase energy flows by 100 MW or more using real-time control actions as needed—reducing energy costs by an estimated $35 million to $75 million over 40 years without any new high-voltage capital investments Maine Oregon Florida
  13. 13. 14-17 Dec, 2014 Saudi Arabia-Jeddah Utility Benefit Case Studies Cont. Oklahoma Gas and Electric, coupling of AMI with time-based rates and in-home displays is: • reducing peak demand to an extent that will potentially enable the utility to defer the construction of a 170 MW peaking power plant. • To date average bill savings of about $150 per participating residential customer The City of Chattanooga was able to: • instantly restore power to half of the residents affected by a severe windstorm on July 5, 2012 (from 80,000 affected customers to less than 40,000 within 2 seconds) using automated feeder switching. PPL Electric has reported a: • 38% improvement in service reliability enabled in part by the deployment of sophisticated analytical capabilities Oklahoma Tennessee Pennsylvania
  14. 14. 14-17 Dec, 2014 Saudi Arabia-Jeddah Building the Grid of the Future in ERCOT The nodal market design has been implemented in ERCOT, allowing for more efficient pricing, dispatch, and siting of generation. CREZ is primarily designed to move renewable energy sources from remote parts of Texas to more heavily populated areas. A number of CREZ projects also provide transmission necessary to meet the long-term needs of the growing area west of the I-35 corridor. More wind energy will further diversify the fuel portfolio of Texas’s generation resources. In ERCOT Smart meters help with 15-minute settlement and replace the use of load profiles in the ERCOT retail market and well as encourage innovative DR products, and facilitate EV deployment. Oncor has installed more than 3 million smart meters in its service area, CenterPoint more than 2 million, and AEP more than 1.1 million. Source: Texas PUC
