1547 Workshop in KY

The new IEEE 1547-2018 lays out a set of options for deployment that may be selected based on system considerations and goals. The updated standards require distributed energy resources to provide specific grid supportive functionalities.  This workshop will review the standard and discuss how states, utilities, and industry professionals will want to consider how default settings might be applied, or whether and when it's appropriate to deviate from default settings based on a DER project's level of interconnection review. The workshop is offered free of charge through a State Energy Program grant between IEEE and the Kentucky Office of Energy Policy. Come learn how integrating the new standard into interconnection processes sooner rather than later will ensure ample time to navigate some of the more complex issues. Save the date for April 18, 2019. Registration details coming soon.
