 *The New England Electricity Restructuring Roundtable Presents: *
* *
*The Future of Distributed Generation *
*in New England*
* *
Please join us Friday October 26 at our 131st New England Electric
Restructuring Roundtable as we examine together the *Future of Distributed
Generation in New England.*


Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities Chair *Ann Berwick* kicks off our
first panel, *The **Evolving Regulatory Landscape for Distributed
Generation in New England*, with a presentation on the Commonwealth's
revised net metering rules (including the system/administrator of net
metering assurance), and an introduction to the DPU's *Notice of
Inquiry<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001N2FXVnsUaXTemlZxFM4r01PZW0C2sYmvJToudGazQPCvaXcxjcpJ79LjWyluhri8Oiu8IsnJnVMR5OUfRZBxviaIeir_5i8aiWVFHeo5rFyenwHcjoHRLiqF9D0l3q4oB8BpZBgXq3SHEYYI0pd3g6JPkDdCSThdqtk5oFAuE72pdv9LCta2PtmtLqts2KZN3P_wq3GS5FSCW7ojQwcXlwf-PFCuCy6brS20fcvvJ_kYa8A8H9Miw2vVHxlNj6UMUZpN9bB8lE2MHvgTTiYKJdApZptPD1t0nXfNt5goD2coR3_jar2dCpd7u4zTKLEg-p0ux1kliVLviiaxvHyCCf9TCzIn-O7X91KAgqvMG-otxLtkKtcQPQ==>
* on Electric Grid Modernization.  Next, *Christie Bradway*, Manager for
Renewable Power Contracts at Northeast Utilities, discusses Connecticut's
new, innovative approach to supporting distributed generation through
renewable energy credit (LREC & ZREC) auctions, and will share the
results of the first auction.


Rounding out the panel is a joint presentation on the recently-filed
consensus package recommendations of the Massachusetts DG Interconnection
Working Group for a revamped DG interconnection process by co-presenters *Fran
Cummings*, VP at Peregrine Energy Group (who represented SEIA and SEBANE in
the Working Group) and *Tim Roughan*, Director of Energy & Environmental
Policy at National Grid.  Fran and Tim also provide their respective DG and
utility perspectives on the evolving DG-related policy landscape in New
England.


Today, distributed generation (behind the customer meter) in New England is
dominated by solar PV installations, with some CHP, small wind, and other
niche technologies. Our second panel, *Potential Next Wave DG-Related
Resources and Technologies, *explores a sampling of resources and
technologies that could play an increasing role in the distributed
generation field in New England, including fuel cells, anaerobic digesters
(now eligible for net metering in MA), and shrouded wind turbines.  This
panel also looks at the role that battery and other storage technologies
can play in firming up distributed generation. We have assembled
a wonderful panel of presenters from entrepreneurial DG-related companies,
including:


*Phil Giudice*, CEO & President, Ambri Inc. (battery storage)
*Charles Fox*, Dir. East Coast Regulatory Affairs, Bloom Energy (fuel cells)
*Wayne Davis*, Co-Founder/VP Gov't Affairs, Harvest Power (anaerobic)
*John Howe*, Director of Public Affairs, FloDesign Wind Turbine Corp
