“Firming Up Solar: Battery Considerations for Utility Scale PV Plus Storage Projects”
NREL hosts an annual Photovoltaic Reliability Workshop (PVRW) so solar technology experts can engage on current and forward-thinking subject matter in PV reliability.
This workshop provides a unique opportunity for group discussions that can yield answers and bring participants to a common understanding for current questions in module and system reliability. Improvements in PV reliability reduce the cost of solar electricity and promote investor confidence in the technology—both critical goals for moving PV technologies deeper into the electricity marketplace.
The 2021 PVRW will be held from Monday, Feb. 22 to Friday, Feb. 26. It will be a virtual workshop. Registration is closed.

Virtual Via Interactive Zoom Broadcast
Who Will Benefit from Attending
Attorneys, industry executives, governmental officials, and customer representatives involved with renewable energy, energy efficiency, electric transmission and gas pipelines, and consideration of alternatives to new projects
Why You will Benefit from Attending
As Virginia embarks on its historic path to a clean energy economy, we will have to reshape energy generation, delivery and consumption in the state. Increased electrification of buildings and transportation will require more clean energy resources and changes to the region’s delivery infrastructure to meet these goals in a cost-effective manner. We are pleased to have assembled a distinguished faculty to discuss these challenges.
You will have an opportunity to hear from and converse with, high-level legal practitioners, policymakers, grid operators, subject area experts, and business executives as they address the challenges of an increased demand for electric power while maintaining a path toward significant carbon reduction goals by 2050.
New resources, including massive amounts of offshore wind, will need to be developed, and our existing transmission and distribution systems will need to evolve to meet these challenges. Our conference will close with a practical prospective to financing and building these projects.
Join us as we stitch together a coherent big picture from seemingly disparate parts, and then offer practical tips and techniques that you can put to work right away. To keep everyone safe during the pandemic, this program will be an interactive Zoom broadcast. We hope you will login to join the conversation. Register soon!

Panelist – Session 6: Perspectives on Energy Storage in the Southeast
About the Conference
Duke Energy, Southern Company and Dominion Energy’s commitments to achieve carbon-free generation are a big game changer for renewable energy and will drive a dramatic shift in the Southeast energy landscape. Plus, the passage of the landmark Virginia Clean Economy Act and the growing appetite for regulatory reform in North Carolina and South Carolina are yet another harbinger that the Southeast will see a major build out of renewables.
Yet, there are many questions about how this buildout will take place. What will be the rules of the game? How will utilities incorporate their commitments into their IRPs and what will be their procurement strategies? How will the region integrate all the new renewables? How will renewable developers need to position their projects to meet the upcoming procurement requirements?
The 5th Annual Southeast Renewable Energy Summit is the event where the entire Southeast renewable energy community will gather virtually to get the latest answers to these questions and to hear from the key players involved. It is your best chance to tap into the regulatory landscape, identify the top markets and to stay on top of where the next RFPs are going to come from in advance.
