On April 7, 2020, FERC issued a Notice announcing that it will host a technical conference this summer to discuss technical and market issues raised by so-called “hybrid resources.” As FERC described, hybrid resources are projects comprising more than one type of resource at the same plant location. The Notice stated that, for purposes of the technical conference, the Commission would focus on generation resources paired with electric storage resources.

The technical conference, docketed in AD20-9-000, is currently scheduled for 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern time on Thursday, July 23, 2020.  FERC will issue a supplemental notice closer to the date, with additional details about the event, including whether it will be held in-person or via teleconference.

Individuals interested in participating as panelists are requested to submit self-nomination forms by May 15, 2020.

More details about the conference, including the link to register as an attendee, are provided in the FERC Notice, available here.
