IEEE Webinar: Smart Grid Research at NREL’s Energy Systems Integration Facility

July 16, 2015, 11:00 - 12:00 MST

This presentation by Dr. Ben Kroposki, Director of NREL's Power Systems Engineering Center, will discuss the new research capabilities at the Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF) located at NREL. The ESIF is a unique new national asset that has the capability to catalyze the public- and private-sector research and development (R&D) necessary to accelerate commercialization and adoption of smart grid technologies into today’s energy systems where they can operate synergistically with other energy resources and technologies.

SEPA Webinar: Innovation for Interconnection: Utility Practices, Procedures & Mitigation Strategies

July 23, 2015, 12:00 - 1:00

In this SEPA webinar, NREL's Michael Coddington will share details of the NREL/EPRI study of interconnection in 21 U.S. electric utilities in California and the Northeast, Central, Southwest U.S. These investor-owned, cooperative and municipal utilities worked closely with NREL and EPRI in evaluating all of their interconnection procedures. The results were somewhat surprising in that many utilities had unique approaches to various steps of interconnection, and all were interested to learn what other utilities were doing, and what best practices might be adopted.

iiESI Energy Systems Integration 102 Course

August 3 - 7, 2015

  • Golden, CO

The International Institute of Energy Systems Integration is presenting a course on Energy Systems Integration (ESI). The course is informed by a recent workshop held in Imperial College London that identified key research challenges in ESI, hence this course is particularly suited for those with an interest in the future research challenges. The course also builds on previous courses held at NREL (ESI 101) and KU Leuven, but these are not deemed to be prerequisites.
