Whether you are new to the electricity industry or an expert in one technology looking to learn more about the others and how they all work together, this event will provide a great opportunity to kick off North America Smart Energy Week and make the most of your conference experience.

This DER Fundamentals Workshop will explore and explain the world of distributed energy resources (DERs) and how they are managed on the grid through the lens of FERC’s NOPR on Electric Storage Participation in Markets Operated by Regional Transmission Organizations and Independent System Operators, along with state regulatory activities such as New York’s Reforming the Energy Vision (NY REV), California’s Distribution Resources Plan (DRP), and other states specifically considering DER in the context of grid modernization. We will work through the issues in an approachable way, relevant to those working in both vertically-integrated and restructured electricity markets.
