Utility Scale Storage in the Southeast
Wednesday, May 11
11:40 am - 12:30 pm

Energy storage technologies have made great advances over the past decade and new innovations are emerging daily as storage plays an increasingly important role in our electric grid, transportation system, and economy. Panelists will discuss a variety of perspectives on legal status and regulatory policy, insights gained from projects, business case and financial investment mechanisms, technology innovations, battery re-use and recycling, management system developments, and expanding market applications.

The State of Demand Flexibility: Balancing the Grid in the Southeast
Wednesday, May 11
2:40 pm - 3:30 pm

Grid edge technologies and load shaping strategies are becoming increasingly appealing to both customers and grid operators. As intermittent clean energy grows, demand reducing and building capabilities of new technologies will help balance the grid while providing compelling customer benefits. Panelists will discuss an overview of recent successes as well as opportunities to further advance clean customer sited resources.

Southeast Cooperative Roundtable
Wednesday, May 11
3:45 pm - 4:35 pm

Cooperative utilities are well-positioned to innovate in response to rapidly changing conditions, from wholesale power prices to emerging technology adoption, and evolving customer desires. This session will investigate how southeast electric cooperatives are rapidly pivoting in response to today’s market demands, and how others in the clean energy industry can learn from these best practices.

Mobility Opportunity: Electric Vehicles and Buses in the Southeast
Wednesday, May 11
4:45 pm - 5:30 pm

Despite quickly establishing itself as the nation’s nexus of electric vehicle and bus manufacturing, Southeast EV adoption still lags other regions when it comes to customer adoption. New federal dollars from the Infrastructure Bill will provide opportunities for new investments to drive adoption. Panelists will explore the potential of electric vehicle adoption in Southeast states from multiple stakeholder perspectives, including utility programs, municipalities, and manufacturers.

Opportunities for DERs in the Southeast
Thursday, May 12
9:00 am - 10:00 am

Customer energy decisions are impacting utility planning and operations decisions across the Southeast. How can utilities, municipalities and policymakers harness the benefits of customer-sited DERs? This session will discuss the opportunities for solar, storage and electric vehicles to provide grid benefits, resiliency benefits, and cost savings to customers and utilities alike.

RE+ Southeast (formerly Solar & Storage SE) has exhibitors and education for solar, storage, EVs, microgrids, and more.
