The PowerForward series intends to chart a clear path forward for future grid modernization projects, innovative regulations and forward-thinking policies. Presentations by industry experts such as BRIDGE offer the Ohio Public Utilities Commission and attendees a better understanding of the electric distribution grid and how technological enhancements could affect different stakeholders as well as frame the grid of the future.

On March 8th BRIDGE’s Sandy Simon will join Bradley Williams (Oracle) and Paul Sotkiewicz (E-Cubed Policy Associated) to discuss Market Design Considerations for new Distribution System Markets. The presentation will address current utility operations and the extensive changes ahead. Simon’s unique expertise will offer:

  • Experience on how new technology integrations lay the foundation to future changes.
  • Insights as to the potential impact of utilities as operators of a “transactive energy marketplace.”
  • Knowledge on how 3rd parties entering the market can potentially compete with utilities.

“The manner in which we produce and distribute power in the future will be guided and optimized by technology innovations brought to life by utility companies and their 3rd party partners,” Simon said. “I look forward to joining my colleagues at this important event as we discuss the foundations of a new and more efficient energy marketplace; one better equipped to serve the needs of a connected customer.”
