3rd IEEE Workshop on Interconnections of Renewables & Energy Storage to Electric Grids

#Renewables #energy #storage

Sponsored by IEEE PES Region 2 and American Electric Power (AEP)

After the 1st and 2nd workshops held successfully in Dec. 2019 and Dec. 2020, respectively, we cannot wait to organize this 3rd workshop this Dec. virtually with no registration fees. This half-day workshop focuses on planning, operations, modeling, and analysis of transmission & distribution connected renewables & energy storage, and their impacts on the system. We have 6 renowned speakers from utilities (i.e., AEP, Arizona Public Service), independent system operator (MISO), consultant (Quanta Technology), National Lab (Argonne), and university (OSU). The opening speeches will be given by AEP Senior Vice President, Mr. Bob Bradish and IEEE PES President, Dr. Jessica Bian. At the end of the workshop, a panel/roundtable session will be held for additional questions and discussions. Four PDHs will be provided to attendees who attend the entire workshop and answer the poll questions. This is a great and uncommon opportunity for you to learn & discuss those cutting-edge technologies with experts from various perspectives. Please RSVP before Dec. 9th with a correct email address, where the Webex Event information will be sent. Look forward to seeing you online!
