PJM in Motion (Environment + Energy Leader Webinar)



In 2015, PJM announced that it was retiring its seasonal emergency capacity demand response programs and replacing them with a single, year-round program called Capacity Performance, or CP. June 2020 was set as the first season that PJM would offer CP as their only capacity program.

June 2020 is just a few months away — and the world is a very different place from when CP was first proposed. Who knew PJM would solo their new emergency capacity program in the middle of one of the greatest upheavals in the last 50 years?

It’s no surprise that times of great flux and uncertainty bring more questions than there are answers for, and misinformation that can cloud the path to needed solutions.

CPower is committed to helping PJM energy users get a better understanding of the facts, clarify the misperceptions, and identify opportunities that still exist in this unprecedented year of change and complexity.

That’s why we’re bringing together our top experts on PJM and Capacity Performance in this timely and important webinar.

Stack & Earn with Pennsylvania Act 129 Demand Response (Webinar)

March 06, 2020

Why should you consider the Act 129 Demand Response Program in Pennsylvania?

Consider this: Pennsylvania’s Act 129 utility demand response program can be combined with PJM programs, including ones you’re probably already participating in—and it utilizes curtailment strategies you’ve already adopted. This means you can earn revenue from the Act 129 demand response program in addition to the PJM DR revenue you’re already earning—with little additional effort. And you can participate in Act 129 even if your current demand response provider is unable to offer it.

The Cost of Energy Resilience – Bouncing Back without Breaking the Bank (Webinar)

February 10, 2020

Resilience, as it pertains to energy, is defined as the ability to have a contingent electrical supply and maintain reliable power in the event of a power failure.

While there isn’t a lot of debate on the need for energy resilience, there are a lot of questions around what to implement and how to pay for it. Join CPower’s NY Sr. Manager of Engineering, Arusyak Ghukasyan, Sr. Account Executive Michael Mindell and CRBE’s Director of Energy and Sustainability, Emily Wilson, as they help provide insight into resilience:

The Most Important Topics For Your Energy Management Strategy This Year (Webinar)

February 06, 2020

When it comes to energy, the last several years have been the most dynamic, exciting, and perhaps confusing of the preceding 100 years. The proliferation of renewables, behind-the-meter storage, energy efficiency, microgrids, and ambitious energy policies (just to name a few) have made planning your organization’s energy strategy for 2020 far more complex than years past. This short but informative 30-minute webinar hosted by CPower’s market experts will cover some of the most important developments and changes in the US’s open energy markets to help you successfully plan and manage your organization’s energy decision strategy.

ERCOT Demand Response: How to Maximize Your Revenue and Resilience in America’s Most Interesting Energy Market.

December 12, 2019

In August 2019, ERCOT, the Texas-area independent system operator (ISO), initiated an unprecedented two demand response events–the first in Texas since 2015.

These demand response events helped prevent brownouts and blackouts on the grid and protected the community as well as the state’s economy from suffering losses due to power outages.

Organizations that participated in these demand response events earned significant revenue. While the events this summer were the first in many years in the Lone Star State, they likely won’t be the last.
