30. Electricity System Flexibility (Legends VII)

As electricity systems include more variable energy resources and experience changing use patterns, flexibility is needed to ensure reliability. In the near-term, existing generation assets could deliver adequate flexibility if market rules provided sufficient incentives. Without rule changes, however, such assets may be inefficiently utilized and their long-term viability threatened. Meanwhile, nascent technologies such as transactive controls may allow demand-side assets to deliver flexibility, but their impacts on utilities and customers, not to mention their public acceptability, are uncertain. This session will explore these diverse perspectives on flexibility by bringing together experts from Department of Energy headquarters and its National Laboratories to review recently completed and ongoing analytical work that is helping to inform operations, planning, policy, and other decisions in this space. This session will also feature a presentation by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission concerning market design efforts that are underway to enable economically efficient deployment and utilization of the myriad of flexibility resources available.
