Distributed Power Generation on the Edge of the Smart Grid
National Capital Area Chapter of the US Association for Energy Economics presents:
"Distributed Power Generation on the Edge of the Smart Grid"
Rooftop solar, photovoltaic solar, energy storage, smart meters and smart inverters are on the edge of the grid, but still in utility control. Challenges remain in making sure these resources contribute to resiliency, reliability and efficiency.
Jonathan Stewart will tell us over lunch on Friday, October 18, 2019, about how these resources will evolve and be controlled. He is director of the Utility Products and Systems Division at the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), in Arlington, Virginia.
Jonathan coordinates NEMA member activities related to energy management and grid modernization across 10 product sections. He is also responsible for leading an electromanufacturing workforce development strategic initiative to promote sector careers and train the future workforce.
A Q&A session will follow.
Chinatown Garden is located at 618 H Street NW in Washington, D.C. 20001.
