K&L Gates will be a Gold Sponsor at Infocast’s 7th Annual Energy Storage Week in Santa Clara from February 11-13. This event will address the projected rapid rise in energy storage project development over the next 3-5 years. Early movers in this market are poised to capture larger than average advantages. Policy makers and senior executives at the forefront of energy storage deployment will be attending the summit to share up to date information on the policies, procedures and industry best practices into business plans and to gain access to key players and decision makers across the entire supply and utilization chains of storage services to further storage projects. K&L Gates attorneys Bill Holmes, Paul Lacourciere, Dirk Michels, Charlie Schwenck and Andrew Young will be attending Infocast’s Energy Storage Week. We look forward to seeing you there!
K&L Gates’ partner Bill Holmes will moderate a panel on the loss of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) that has led California to seek alternative ways to replace approximately 2000 mW of emission‐free baseload power. The most recent California energy bills, AB 327 and SB 43 extends the development of distributed solar and requires utilities to develop an additional 600 MW of renewable generating capacity above and beyond the existing 33% RPS, respectively. What will be needed from storage to increase the capacity factor of distributed energy resources?
