Location: 202AB

Gridvolution, coined to characterize “electricity grid in evolution,” gives voice to Distributed Energy Resources (DER) stakeholders working to digitize information and interoperability of energy assets. This platform brings together those creating our digital energy reality with standardized data communications touching every aspect of residential, commercial, and industrial solar and energy storage.

Gridvolution, at Solar Power International, showcases high level stakeholders shaping the digital DER ecosystem. Senior executives will address opportunities in four major sectors of the digital energy grid, then weave them together as leaders envision the future taking shape in California today:
1. Streamlining Financial Market Availability of DER Assets through Orange Button
2. Building the Digital Grid – CA Rule 21 and Interoperability
3. Addressing Safety Mandates – Communication Interoperability Solutions for NEC 2017 Rapid Shutdown Compliance
4. Cyber Security – Ensuring DER Systems on the Grid are Secure
5. Gridvolution – Bringing Digital Energy to Life: An Interactive Exercise to Envision the Future of Energy
