The era of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) pilot projects is over. Renewables and DERs are now growing at such a rapid pace that utilities need to be thinking ahead of this transition. The traditional power system engineering paradigm is turned upside-down: causing us to rethink the relationship of transmission and distribution and the frequency by which load is managed.
The transition occurring in today’s energy market to a sustainable grid creates some important questions: How can utilities stay ahead of the DER revolution where assets are marketed and commissioned by third-party companies on their service territory? How can grid operators keep OT systems in synch with how these devices evolve over time, from both their technical and contractual attributes? How can utilities model, visualize, monitor and, ultimately control these DER devices which do not belong to them? How can owners and operators arbitrate the conflicting objectives, at any moment in time, between Transmission, Distribution, and the prosumer, about how renewables and DERs should be dispatched or scheduled? This free to attend webinar will cover these important challenges, questions, and exciting opportunities as we all move towards a rethinking of the grid. Come hear from and interact with front-runner utilities worldwide on how they approach these critical challenges.
