4th IEEE Workshop on Interconnections of Renewables & Energy Storage to Electric Grids

Room: DT-LL-1 & DT-LL-2, Bldg: AES Ohio Office, 1065 Woodman Drive, Dayton, Ohio, United States, 45432, Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/406059

This one-day workshop focuses on planning, operations, modeling, analysis, and implementation of transmission & distribution connected renewables & energy storage, and their impacts on the system. There will be 4 utility executives and 2 members from the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) to participate along with over a dozen of renowned speakers and panelists from utilities, vendors, consultants, universities, and national labs. Seven PDHs will be provided to attendees who attend the entire workshop in person. Remote attendees are welcome (without PDH certificates). This is a great and uncommon opportunity for you to learn & discuss those cutting-edge technologies with experts from various perspectives. Please RSVP before April 21st with the correct email address.
