Trucks: The "Future Of" Electric Commercial Vehicles
The electrification of commercial vehicles continues to gain momentum as companies around the world focus their attention on the benefits of electric power alternatives versus the long-established internal combustion engine (ICE). Battery electric vehicles for commercial applications are here today and are an increasingly used alternative to traditional gasoline, diesel, alternative fuel and hybrid powertrains. This webinar provided an update from two leaders in the trucking industry who shared insight into the business case for electric trucks, the timeline for their growth and the electric service requirements.

Batteries: The Future Implications of Energy Storage
Battery energy storage systems (BESS) have significant implications for electric co-ops and their consumer-members. Both lithium-ion and flow battery technologies are projected to see significant cost declines in the coming years. BESS can be used for a variety of applications, including demand response, T&D infrastructure deferral, integration of renewable energy, and microgrids. Find out the latest trends in battery energy storage technology and how co-ops are deploying BESS. Hear deployment forecasts for utility scale storage. This session highlighted the
Battery Energy Storage Technology Overview recently published by NRECA, NRUCFC, CoBank and NRTC.

AMI Data: The "Future Of" Grid Analytics (Hint ... It’s here!)
The future of grid analytics starts now. Use your AMI to build a grid analytics platform at your distribution utility. In this session, learn how to get more done with your AMI and other systems such as engineering analysis and SCADA. In addition, we shared how to configure your AMI system and to identify the data that matters, as bringing back all the data is usually not the best approach. We also walked through an example, using open source and other readily available commercial tools, to demonstrate how to store and analyze the data.
