2019 Workshop

IEEE Workshop on Interconnections of Renewables & Energy Storage to Electric Grids

This one-day workshop focuses on planning, operations, control, modeling and business cases of transmission & distribution connected renewables & energy storage, and their impacts on the system. We have multiple speakers from utilities and energy companies (i.e., AEP & Engie), system operator (i.e., PJM), universities (i.e., OSU, CWRU), and a National Lab (Argonne National Lab). At the end of the workshop, a panel/roundtable session will be held for additional questions and discussions across industry. Up to 6.5 PDHs will be provided to attendees. This is a great and uncommon opportunity for you to learn & discuss those cutting-edge technologies with experts from various perspectives. Please RSVP before Nov. 15th with a $15 early-bird registration fee and a $25 fee afterward. Breakfast, coffees and lunch will be included and parking is free. Look forward to seeing you!
