Fundamentals of the Power Grid and Electricity Pricing
This recorded webinar, presented by EnergyCAP Project Manager David Ulmer, will cover the basics of how the Electricity Grid in the United States works, and how grid operators simultaneously manage three primary goals:
- Keeping the lights on 24 - 7
- Keeping the cost to consumers low by operating efficient electricity markets
- Planning for the future
More specifically, David will discuss at a high level the logistics of grid operation and connectivity, the “rules of the road” for electricity tariffs and who makes them, grid operators and electricity distribution, wholesale electricity markets, component cost of electricity bills, dynamic pricing and capacity demand charges.
