Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 84 / Tuesday, May 4, 2021 / Notices 1:30 p.m.–2:30 p.m.: Lunch 2:30 p.m.–4:00 p.m.: Panel 3: Transmission and Distribution System Services Provided by Flexible Demand This panel will explore transmission and distribution grid services that can be provided by newly electrified resources (e.g., electric vehicles, smart thermostats, heat pumps, etc.) and the technology required for these resources to provide grid services. It will also discuss whether any barriers exist to these resources providing grid services they are technically capable of providing. The panel may include a discussion of the following questions: 1. What grid services can newly electrified resources provide or otherwise facilitate? a. For example, what grid services can consumer electric vehicles or electric vehicle fleets most effectively provide today? What is the current state of development for vehicle-to-grid technologies, and will further advancements enable consumer electric vehicles or electric vehicle fleets to provide additional grid services in the future? b. What other types of newly electrified resources can currently provide grid services, and what grid services can they most effectively provide? For example, can gridinteractive buildings be meaningful sources of flexible demand? c. What, if any, newly electrified resources cannot currently provide grid services, but may be able to in the future? What barriers must be overcome for that to occur? 2. What technological capabilities (e.g., interoperability) 1 are required for newly electrified resources to provide grid services? What is the current state of development for these capabilities? What could speed up or slow down such development? 3. What challenges exist to deploying newly electrified resources to provide grid services in the RTO/ISO and nonRTO/ISO regions? 4. What barriers, if any, exist to newly electrified resources providing grid services in wholesale or retail markets? khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Panelists • Adrianne Collins, Senior Vice President of Power Delivery, Southern Company 1 Interoperability refers to ‘‘the capability of two or more networks, systems, devices, applications, or components to work together, and to exchange and readily use information—securely, effectively, and with little or no inconvenience to the user.’’ See National Institute of Standards and Technology, Natl.

This panel will focus on how local, state, and federal governmental entities can coordinate to ensure the grid is prepared to handle additional load from electrification and to ensure that newly electrified sources of energy demand provide the grid services they are technically capable of providing. The panel may include a discussion of the following questions: 1. What role can coordination among local, state, and federal governmental entities play with regard to electrification? 2. What planning and coordination among local, state, and federal governmental entities is necessary to facilitate the provision of grid services by newly electrified resources in a way that maximizes benefits to the grid while decreasing the potential reliability, operational, and cybersecurity risks that electrification could pose? 3. Regional initiatives and multi-state cooperation efforts have formed in recent years to coordinate EV charging infrastructure deployment. What can we learn from those efforts and what role, if any, does the federal government play in supporting those efforts? 4. How can interoperability protocols and standards be coordinated across local, state, and federal jurisdictions? 5. What coordination efforts among local, state, and federal governmental entities have been most effective in addressing electrification? How could those coordination efforts be improved?
