Get to Know Your SPI & ESI Speakers

SPI & ESI continues to be the industry’s most powerful educational platform, highlighting over 300 hours of top-notch sessions, over three days from leading experts in their fields. Before heading to Anaheim this year, join us as we get to know some of these thought-leaders in our weekly series highlighting speakers you’ll meet in September.

Get to Know Your SPI & ESI Speakers: Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP Norman C. Bay

This week, we meet Norman C. Bay. He is a partner and Head of the Energy Regulatory and Enforcement Group at Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP in Washington. Bay advises clients on a range of energy market regulation issues, including those relating to policy, rates, terms, and conditions of service, and mergers and acquisitions. Let’s get to know him a little bit more!

SOLAR ENERGY TRADE SHOWS (SETS): You’re seen as a thought leader in our industry. Tell us how you came to be working in this space.

NORMAN BAY: In 2009, I was given the opportunity to be the Director of the Office of Enforcement at FERC.  Several years later, President Obama nominated me to the Commission and made me the Chairman.  When I first started at FERC, I thought that I would only be there for a year or two.  I ended up being at FERC for almost eight years.  I found myself fascinated by energy law and policy, especially in this time of dramatic change.

SETS: What do you think is special about SPI?

BAY: The scale of SPI alone is amazing.  I am told that 20,000 people attend SPI.  And when you consider the growth of solar energy to date, as well as solar’s future, the attendance is understandable.  Here in the US, according to SEIA, solar has had an average annual growth rate of 59 percent over the last decade.  Globally, the IEA has projected that over the next five years solar PV will provide the largest annual capacity additions for renewables, well above wind and hydro.  According to the IEA, “[s]olar PV is entering a new era.”  Solar’s future makes SPI an exciting place to be.

SETS: At SPI this year, you are moderating a panel on PURPA. Why is PURPA important?

BAY: PURPA was enacted in 1978.  Over the last 40 years, it has helped promote the development of renewables and competition in the wholesale markets, particularly in bilateral markets.  In 2016, FERC held a technical conference on PURPA to explore concerns raised by renewables developers and utilities, and my panel will hear from both supporters and critics of PURPA, from those who think it does not go far enough, to those who think it goes too far.  The conversation promises to be a lively one.  

SETS: You are a Partner at Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP. What do you love about your job?

BAY: Lawyers are problem solvers.  I like my clients and enjoy helping them solve their problems and achieve their objectives.  Good legal counsel is especially important nowadays in assisting clients as they navigate the change happening in the energy space. 

SETS: We know you love solar energy, but what do you like to do in your spare time?

BAY: Being from New Mexico, I do love the sun and solar energy.  I enjoy the outdoors, especially flyfishing, which I find incredibly relaxing.  Put me on a freestone stream in the Rockies, and I’m happy.   I also enjoy travel, art, classical music, running, and reading. 

Block off your calendar on Tuesday, September 25, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm PST and hear more from Bay as he shares her expertise in The Challenges and Benefits of PURPA at SPI & ESI 2018.

Get to Know Your SPI & ESI Speakers: Sunrun's Audrey Lee, Ph.D.

This week, we meet Audrey Lee, Vice President of Grid Services at Sunrun. In her role, Audrey leads Sunrun’s efforts to deploy and aggregate residential solar plus storage to create cleaner and less costly grid infrastructure while reducing customers’ bills. Before joining Sunrun, Audrey was responsible for the analytics and operations platform to optimize fleets of distributed energy resources as virtual power plants at Advanced Microgrid Solutions. She holds a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Princeton University. Let’s get to know her a little bit more!

SOLAR ENERGY TRADE SHOWS (SETS): You’re seen as a thought leader in our industry. Tell us how you came to be working in this space.

AUDREY LEE: In graduate school, while earning my Ph.D. in electrical engineering, I took a few classes in the public policy school where I fell in love with energy policy. I started out my career modeling U.S. and global energy markets at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), translating policies into equations and translating model results into policy implications. I delved deeper into electricity utility regulation when I joined the CA Public Utilities Commission and worked on demand response, energy storage, data, and transmission policy. After that, I had the amazing opportunity to join Advanced Microgrid Solutions as the first employee. Back then it was me and the founders of AMS working in the CEO's apartment. I was able to leverage the linear programming, optimization work I did at the DOE to build the AMS battery optimization platform, where we co-optimized for both the end-use customer and the utility grid services contract. And now, at Sunrun, we’re building tomorrow’s energy system: a cleaner, more affordable and reliable system utilizing home solar and batteries.  Home solar and storage has the potential to revolutionize our energy system, improving the grid for everyone. We’re aggregating and optimizing residential solar and storage systems for grid services - it’s an exciting future.

SETS: What do you think is special about SPI?

LEE: Since I haven't worked in solar before Sunrun, this will actually be my first time attending SPI and I'm very curious about it. I've been saying "see you at SPI" to folks every other day these past few weeks. I expect to learn a ton, see old colleagues and meet new ones.

SETS: At SPI this year, you are speaking on a panel on residential energy storage. What's next in this field?

LEE: More capabilities to meet customer needs, reducing soft costs by increasing install efficiencies, policies to make solar and storage accessible to low and medium income customers.

SETS: You are VP of Energy Services at Sunrun. What do you love about your job?

LEE: My job is to imagine tomorrow's grid, the grid that customers want, and make it happen. I love my team that makes it actually happen, and the leadership at Sunrun that aims high. Sunrun is founded on the belief that solar should be available and accessible to everyone, and we're making that happen.

SETS: We know you love solar energy, but what do you like to do in your spare time?

LEE: Relish the joy my two children give me. I'm learning to skateboard with my son, sharing the Judy Blume novels I read as a girl with my daughter, figuring out how to play Minecraft with both of them.

Block off your calendar on Tuesday, September 25, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm PST and hear more from Lee as she shares her expertise in Residential Energy Storage Outlook at SPI & ESI 2018.

Get to Know Your SPI & ESI Speakers: Customized Energy Solutions' Jacqueline DeRosa

This week, we meet Jacqueline DeRosa, Vice President of Emerging Technologies at Customized Energy Solutions (CES) where she heads the CES Emerging Technology consulting division for North America.  Jacqueline advises storage stakeholders on investment strategies, RFP responses, contractual requirements, interconnection rules, and rules for commercial operations in the wholesale markets.  Jacqueline is an elected Board member for the national Energy Storage Association (ESA). Let’s get to know her a little bit more!

SOLAR ENERGY TRADE SHOWS (SETS): You’re seen as a thought leader in our industry. Tell us how you came to be working in this space.

JACQUELINE DEROSA: I began my career in the electric power industry way before deregulation.  I’ve always looked forward to what’s coming next, and I jumped into the energy storage space early on.  I envisioned storage as the game changer for the industry.  As prices for energy storage have come down, and market design rules are now being created for multiple use applications, we are finally turning the corner to be able to store electricity in an efficient and economical way.

SETS: What do you think is special about SPI?

DEROSA: SPI/ESI is an all-encompassing venue where all stakeholders are welcome to exchange ideas, and learn about advances in our industry, including how energy storage can change the energy landscape.  Everyone’s included.


SETS: At SPI this year, you are speaking about valuing solar and storage. What are the benefits of pairing these two technologies?


DEROSA: There is a long list of benefits when combining solar and storage.  Storing solar power can lower electricity prices at peak demand times, help defer new peak capacity investments, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Adding storage to solar also provides a more controllable generation source, thus improving reliability, efficiency, and grid stability.  When combined, the hybrid resource can provide beneficial services to the grid – including frequency regulation, voltage support, load shifting, and dispatchability.

SETS: As the Vice President of Customized Energy Solutions, you work at the intersection of technology and energy markets. What is one emerging technology solution that you are excited about right now?

DEROSA: I’m immersed in the regulatory and policy space, and I truly get excited over the creation of fair rules for integrating energy storage in the wholesale markets.  It’s also exciting to see that rules are finally being crafted for multiple use applications that cross jurisdictions. These changes can put energy storage on a level playing field with other technologies. Don’t get me wrong  - I’m continually fascinated about the advancements in battery and flywheel technologies too; tomorrow’s energy storage technologies will be safer, more efficient, and cheaper.

SETS: We know you love solar energy, but what do you like to do in your spare time?

DEROSA: I’m a die-hard beach volleyball player. It’s great exercise, competitive, and pure fun.

Block off your calendar on Tuesday, September 25, 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm PST and hear more from DeRosa as she shares her expertise in Value Stacking and Finance Innovations at SPI & ESI 2018.

Get to Know Your SPI & ESI Speakers: CohnReznick Capital's Britta von Oesen

This week, we meet Britta von Oesen, Managing Director with CohnReznick Capital, who leads their San Francisco Office. She has 10+ years of experience in investment banking, tax equity, corporate strategy, and development in the wind, solar, and broader environmental sector. Let’s get to know her a little bit more!

SOLAR ENERGY TRADE SHOWS (SETS): You’re seen as a thought leader in our industry. Tell us how you came to be working in this space.

BRITTA VON OESEN: I was in renewables development for years after business school, both with WindKraft Nord managing their Italian Wind group and with Gestamp Solar as Head of Corporate Development and Strategy. In 2014 I was approached by the leadership at CohnReznick Capital on opening a west coast presence and building out the team here in San Francisco. I was enthusiastic about the opportunity to work with CohnReznick – the group was in an exciting period of growth and taking on more and more significant clients and deals. Fast forward to today where CohnReznick Capital is advising the major names in the renewables space and is a team of 35+ professionals devoted to renewable energy. We are closing groundbreaking deals in project finance and in the M&A space, and I am passionate about our continued success.

SETS: What do you think is special about SPI?

VON OESEN: SPI is the largest solar conference in the country – at no other time in the year does the convergence of each segment within the industry meet in one place and for this length of time. On each panel, or even walking through the lobby you see thought leaders from throughout the industry – technology, financing, development, etc. The conference is a good opportunity for these parties to touch base, compare notes, and generate deals.

SETS: At SPI this year, you are moderating a panel on The Next Phase of C&I. Why is C&I important for financing renewables?

VON OESEN: The difficulty of achieving scale and efficiency is a hurdle for some C&I developers and investors, but distributed generation continues to be a key component of the energy infrastructure going forward. CohnReznick Capital has significant experience with C&I project finance, working with sponsors to streamline the process and allow for economies of scale deploy MWs. We are seeing increased interest from tax equity and debt providers going after DG opportunities and also significant sponsor equity interest in the space. The market is extremely active at the moment, from full company sales to minority or majority interest transactions in DG platforms.  The panel at SPI should be an interesting perspective of how storage will impact C&I projects, in energy management and also with respect to financing. We have a great group of panelists who should share a lot of insight.

SETS: You are the Managing Director at CohnReznick Capital. What do you love about your job?

VON OESEN:    CohnReznick Capital is a unique advisor in the renewables space – no one else has our focus on renewables or our deep knowledge of tax structuring and accounting. Our business model focuses on an incredibly hands on approach with our clients, and we see those clients coming back for their 2nd, 3rd… 10th deal with us. It has been such a privilege to see this group expand, advise on the major deals in the industry and our clients achieve incredible success. On a more personal note, the group is not your typical investment bank. We focus on promoting an entrepreneurial attitude, and work hard-play hard is a consistent theme. Some of the strongest young minds of the industry work with us and we expect to see great things from them.

SETS: We know you love solar energy, but what do you like to do in your spare time?

VON OESEN: My husband, our two daughters and our French bulldog love to be outdoors. Whether it is going to the beach for a surf session, camping up in the mountains or hitting the ski resorts, we try to spend as much time outdoors as possible. San Francisco is such an amazing environment with all of these options a short drive away

Block off your calendar on Wednesday, September 26, 9:30 am – 10:30 am PST and hear more from Von Oesen as she shares his expertise in The Next Phase of C&I: How to Diligently Finance Solar + Storage Projects at SPI & ESI 2018.

Get to Know Your SPI & ESI Speakers: CleanCapital's Jon Powers

This week, we meet Jon Powers, President and Co-Founder of CleanCapital. He leads corporate strategy and development, investor relations, and marketing for the organization. Jon's passion for clean energy derives from his time served with the US Army in Iraq and the realization that a clean energy economy is vital to protect America's national security interests. Let’s get to know him a tad bit more!

SOLAR ENERGY TRADE SHOWS (SETS): You’re seen as a thought leader in our industry. Tell us how you came to be working in this space.

JON POWERS: In 2003 I deployed to Iraq as part of the US Army and  Operation Iraqi Freedom. Like many Iraq/Afghanistan veterans, I really began to understand the issues around energy security while being on the ground there because we saw first hand the effects of our energy policy. When I came home I realized that I wanted to become involved in finding solutions. I didn’t know what those were but as I really began to focus in the area, I realized that renewable energy was a key part of the solution. I went on to be the first Special Advisor on Energy to the Army, helped to develop the Army’s clean energy programs, and then from there went on to be President Obama’s Chief Sustainability Officer for the federal government. In this role I saw the need to bring more capital into the clean energy space, and that led me to co-found CleanCapital.

SETS: What do you think is special about SPI?

POWERS: What’s great about SPI is that as the industry has matured, so has the conference. Solar is becoming an integral part of the broader distributed generation market, so you are seeing new technologies like storage and fuel cells represented at the show. You also have major corporations that are working towards significant renewable goals in a way that never happened ten years ago, and those stakeholders are becoming active at the conference.  You also get a chance to engage all facets of the industry – policymakers, investors, developers, technology – so it really gives you insight on where the market is today and where it’s going.

SETS: At SPI this year, you are moderating a panel on microgrids. Why are microgrids important and how do you see business in the sector evolving?

POWERS: As distributed generation continues to thrive; more and more corporations are becoming interested in the idea. The question becomes how do we manage those electrons efficiently. We used to just rely on a utility to do it but now we are looking at more innovative solutions like microgrids. I think for a long time microgrids were “the future” but now we are getting actual projects and pilots out there as case studies. As a result, we are finding out how the hardware, software, and business models are integrating. The next threshold here is what is the overall business case and how we are going to finance these in a way that is repeatable for other customers. That will unleash the market around microgrids.

SETS: You are the Co-Founder of CleanCapital. What do you love about your job?

POWERS: Everything! We are a very mission oriented company, and I love working with an amazing team that strives to make such a positive impact both today and for generations. We also get to do a podcast called Experts Only - it focuses on the intersection of energy, innovation and finance. It’s a really a great way for our team to keep abreast of what’s going on in the market. The above mentioned microgrid session will be recorded live for our Experts Only listeners.

SETS: We know you love solar energy, but what do you like to do in your spare time?

POWERS: Hanging with my family, number 1. Number 2 ski!

Block off your calendar on Wednesday, September 26, 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm PST and hear more from Powers as he examines the state of microgrids and shares his expertise in Microgrid 'enomics - Defining the Business Opportunities at SPI & ESI 2018.

Get to Know Your SPI & ESI Speakers: STEM Inc's Polly Shaw

This week, we meet Polly Shaw, Vice President, Regulatory Affairs and Communications, Stem, Inc. serving in this role since 2016. She has 25 years of clean energy and energy efficiency policy experience in the U.S. and China. Shaw is on the board of the Interstate Renewable Energy Council, and has served on the board of the California Energy Storage Alliance, Solar Energy Industries Association, and the Large Scale Solar Association. Let’s get to know her a little bit more!

SOLAR ENERGY TRADE SHOWS (SETS): You’re seen as a thought leader in our industry. Tell us how you came to be working in this space.

POLLY SHAW: I remember thinking about distributed generation and distributed storage with my Environmental Protection Agency clients back in the 1990s, so it’s been personally fulfilling to come full circle to work on this at Stem. In 2006, after 13 years of working on other climate solutions like energy efficiency, I was elated when SB 1 passed to engage California consumers in distributed solar with $3 billion in incentives. This led me to join the California Public Utilities Commission to help launch and manage the program, after which I joined two solar companies. And look what the industry did over the next decade: We mainstreamed solar across the U.S. with widespread benefit, including for low-income customers. Now I see the same vast potential to make distributed energy storage a win for customers, utilities, grid operators, climate regulators, and the ratepayers. In order to mitigate global warming, we need energy storage—both standalone and solar+storage—everywhere on the grid.

SETS: What do you think is special about SPI?

SHAW: I’ve been attending SPI since 2006 and believe it’s the best one-stop event for solar issues in the country, with the most thoughtful conference topics and speakers, and attracting everyone in the value chain including customers.  And it’s a great venue for Stem to promote its solar+storage experience.  Moreover, it’s important to keep our U.S. trade associations strong, and SPI revenues get reinvested in U.S. solar policy designs and dialogues.  So the SPI show for solar and the Energy Storage Association Annual Conference are the two central “go to” events of the year for Stem on each subject.

SETS: At SPI this year, you are speaking about the economics of energy storage. What’s next for the energy storage market?

SHAW: The energy markets are changing, energy policies are changing, rates are changing, and customers’ interests around energy control are changing. Energy storage gives customers the flexibility to deal with all of those changes. Moreover, the timing and location of demand is now more important to a utility, so networks of customer-sited storage gives them flexible, reliable, fast-dispatch resources when and where they need it most. Doing so helps integrate higher penetrations of renewable energy on the grid. But a battery is just hardware. Given the right artificial intelligence software to manage the battery, energy storage can provide onsite savings for the customer, while also performing wholesale market interactions and grid services when the systems are not needed onsite. That ability for distributed storage to perform real-time energy optimization, offering multiple services for multiple stakeholders, is revolutionary.

SETS: You are VP of Regulatory Affairs and Communications at Stem, Inc. What do you love about your job?

SHAW: I love showing the execution and results of energy storage benefits to the decision makers who are supporting energy storage policies. For example, Stem dispatched our ‘virtual power plants’ of aggregated storage systems into the California wholesale market over 600 times in 2017 to alleviate grid strain around wildfires and heat waves—in addition to saving the customers money by reducing their demand charges. Again in 2018, in just the one month of July, we executed 97 times in our wholesale and utility demand response programs to help California manage through the heat waves. Now we have the opportunity to spread solar+storage across the country, to maximize the value of a customer’s solar system, give them greater control and flexibility in the face of changing electric rates, and give them access to new market opportunities via our network’s other contracted services. That’s so cool. What customer-sited energy storage is doing is truly transformative for a clean, modernized, reliable grid.

SETS: We know you love solar energy, but what do you like to do in your spare time?

SHAW: I think by now pretty much everyone in the industry knows my love of hunting mushrooms and abalone (and no, I’m still not sharing my ‘spots’). Other than that and helping Grid Alternatives expand their low-income solar and job training programs, there’s not a lot of spare time—we have a lot of opportunity to expand on storage’s value and transform the grids to help mitigate climate change.

Block off your calendar on Tuesday, September 25 from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. PST and hear more from Shaw as she shares her expertise on “The Expectations for the Economics of Energy Storage” ( at SPI & ESI 2018.

Get to Know Your SPI & ESI Speakers: NEXTracker, Inc.'s Dan Shugar

This week, we meet Dan Shugar, Founder and CEO of NEXTracker, Inc.

INTERVIEWER: Tell us how you came to be working in this space?

DAN SHUGAR: I was fortunate early in my career in 1988 to be given the opportunity to work in PG&E R&D program in the solar power area. I put forth the idea to use solar to support the grid and we did a national project as part of PV USA evaluating the role of grid support. Actually, some of the early thinking for the Solar Electric Power Association that led to SPI, came out of the PV USA Consortium of utilities national labs and researchers and a number of key people helped make that happen.

INTERVIEWER: What do you think is special about SPI?

SHUGAR: SPI is the largest and most influential solar Conference & exhibition in the United States. It combines a great collaboration between the industry, utilities, and policymakers to evolve strategies on how solar can obtain a larger role in the US power sector.

INTERVIEWER: At SPI this year, you are speaking about utility-scale solar. What’s new in the utility-scale solar landscape?

SHUGAR: What's new about the utility sector starts with solar becoming the lowest cost source of energy in sunny areas, and that happened about two to three years ago. Now we've seen solar grow to real scale and in some markets like California, we're starting to see curtailment. That leads to questions and solutions regarding regionalization, needs between adjacent utility areas, and storage - which are the highly topical items today. Additionally, tariffs and international trade matters have introduced uncertainty and navigating these difficult issues is especially important in utility sector.

INTERVIEWER: You are the Founder and CEO of NEXTracker, Inc. What inspired you to create this start-up?

SHUGAR: We founded NEXTracker 5 years ago because we saw the need to create a next-generation tracker that incorporated connectivity and intelligence to generate more energy at lower cost for customers. The strategy was successful and helped us achieve lead global position in the industry three years ago. We actually are market share and manufacturing base. Today we're serving customers on five continents and we're also manufacturing all over the world.

INTERVIEWER: We know you love solar energy, but what do you like to do in your spare time?

SHUGAR: Beyond solar, my passions are family, outdoors, and music. This last week my classic rock group Groovity had the opportunity to serve as the Rhythm Section for the solar industry in a multi company musical Jam experience at the Warfield theater. It was fabulous to work with a dozen solar companies and great musicians to facilitate that amazing session.

Don’t forget to join Shugar Tuesday, September 25 from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm PST and hear more from him as he discusses “Drivers of Utility-Scale Solar and Storage” ( at SPI & ESI 2018.

Get to Know Your SPI & ESI Speakers: ENGIE's Walker Wright

This week, we meet Walker Wright, Director in ENGIE North America’s Strategy & Policy Group and Vice President of Public Policy to ENGIE Storage (formerly Green Charge Networks), where he is shaping the storage leader’s national and state policy strategy.

SOLAR ENERGY TRADE SHOWS (SETS): Tell us how you came to be working in this space?

WALKER WRIGHT: By the time I was finishing grad school there was chatter among my peers that clean energy was going to go mainstream finally. Amidst some career indecisiveness and reading “Chasing the Sun: Solar Adventures Around the World” by Neville Williams, I landed a consulting job to research the early carbon offset and REC markets.  I then moved into business development in solar and quickly confirmed that policy acumen would be an advantage for success as early state level markets developed. As my career progressed I was fortunate to work in a few environments where I was constantly engaged with “policy mentors” who were seriously experienced policy leaders across our industry, some of whom had earned their stripes putting in place the early building blocks of state level solar markets. Going further back I grew up in a household where these issues were often part of the kitchen table discussion. My father worked in both politics and energy at different points and there was certainly good banter on the “sausage making” process.   

SETS: What do you think is special about SPI?

WRIGHT: Simple: Everyone is there. It is the time to stroll around and catch up with colleagues from across the US at the events & panels. I think I’ve only missed one SPI since 2006 and still vividly recall Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s speech in October of 2008 in San Diego when he enthusiastically proclaimed it was time to double down on solar amidst the difficult economy of the time.   

SETS: At SPI this year, you are speaking about the economics of energy storage. What’s next for the energy storage market?

WRIGHT: Energy storage truly is bacon in that it is delicious with everything. It is the solution for so many of the challenging questions surrounding the “grid of the future” as we aim for a cleaner and more distributed electricity system. For onsite energy storage, we have work to do in terms of rate design, interconnection, permitting, customer education, and finance models etc.

The “next step” many at this conference are excited about is enabling the aggregation of customer sites with paired solar and storage systems to participate in wholesale and ancillary markets.  Overall, the customer value proposition for energy storage will continue to improve and this transition will help out ratepayers as a more efficient grid with comparatively more power produced and stored close to where it is consumed will require less transmission infrastructure upgrades.

SETS: You lead the ENGIE Storage (formerly Green Charge Networks) policy effort and serve as a Director of ENGIE North America’s Strategy & Policy Group. What is driving ENGIE’s pivot to clean energy?

WRIGHT: We get that question a lot. First it is important to highlight that clean and low carbon energy has been part of ENGIE’s portfolio for decades, including wind, solar, biomass, and hydro.  So, it is less of a pivot and more of a massive, concentrated focus here in North America and around the world by ENGIE to prioritize on how best to meet customers’ desire for clean power. We can do that at a utility scale or in localized ways, dg, energy storage, microgrid work, EV charging etc. The point is to design projects that make sense for the customer.

SETS: We know you love solar energy, but what do you like to do in your spare time?

WRIGHT: My wife and I are always looking for physical activities for our two young energetic boys. Personally, I collect maps, always have a history book on the nightstand, and play or watch a fair amount of soccer.

Block off your calendar on Tuesday, September 25 from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. PST and hear more from Wright as he discusses The Expectations for the Economics of Energy Storage at SPI & ESI 2018.
