Staff Report to the Secretary on Electricity Markets and Reliability

Secretary Rick Perry directed his staff to develop a report including an assessment of the reliability and resilience of the electric grid and an overview of the evolution of electricity markets. The study contains a comprehensive analysis and series of recommendations from the Department of Energy staff meant to inform and guide policy makers, regulators, and the general public in future conversations about the challenges America faces. Download and read the report below and submit your input here.


Identifying Potential Markets for Behind-the-Meter Battery Energy Storage: A Survey of U.S. Demand Charges

This collaborative paper by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Clean Energy Group details the first comprehensive public analysis of the potential size of the commercial behind-the-meter battery storage market in the United States. The researchers analyzed representative building load profiles against more than 10,000 utility tariffs, finding that over 25 percent of commercial customers across the country may be able to cost-effectively reduce their utility bills with battery storage technologies today.

The researchers looked at the number of commercial customers eligible for utility rate tariffs that included demand charges of $15 or more per kilowatt, an industry benchmark for identifying economic opportunities for behind-the-meter storage. They concluded that approximately 5 million customers were at or above this demand charge threshold. This represents a substantial market opportunity for behind-the-meter battery storage, which can be installed to control peak demand and lower electricity bills by reducing demand charge expenses.

The paper presents these findings, grouped by utility service territory and state, and illustrated in a series of maps and tables.

Licitaciones de suministro eléctrico para clientes regulados: Un caso de éxito

La Agenda de Energía vino a cambiar el paradigma imperante en el sector eléctrico de nuestro país por más de 30 años desde la dictación de la Ley General de Servicios Eléctricos el año 1982, de acuerdo al cual la conducción del desarrollo del sector eléctrico se encontraba totalmente entregada al mercado. Conforme a la Agenda de Energía, el Estado pasaría a tener un rol más activo “en la planificación de largo plazo del sector, conciliando objetivos económicos, ambientales y sociales, en pro del bien común de todos los chilenos y chilenas”


NCSC published factsheet on Indicators of Compromise (IoCs)

In order to observe malicious digital activities within an organisation, Indicators of Compromise (IoCs) are a valuable asset. With IoCs, organisations can gain quick insights at central points in the network into malicious digital activities. When your organisation observes these activities, it is important to know what you can do to trace back which system is infected. Obtain as much contextual information with an IoC as possible, so that you get a clear picture of what is happening and how serious this is.

It is important to share IoCs between organisations. By doing so, other organisations will be able to defend themselves against similar incidents. With the TLP classification you define with whom information may be shared and how the recipients may or may not share the information further.

This factsheet describes how you can monitor for IoCs within your organisation and which steps you take when an IoC generates a hit. This factsheet also describes how to deal with confidentiality of IoCs and how you can create IoCs yourself.
