Description

Join Us

Please join NREL and our industry partners, the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and Schneider Electric for an Industry Day workshop and technology demonstration at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s Energy Systems Integration Facility. The demonstration will feature EPRI’s Smart and Connected Consumer Devices project and the EPRI-Schneider Electric Communication and Control Systems project, developed under the U.S. Department of Energy’s Integrated Network Testbed for Energy Grid Research and Technology Experimentation (INTEGRATE) project.

The technology demonstrates a new framework for distributed resource communications. With the goal to resolve challenges that utilities face in receiving information about the state of their electric grids, the System Communication team combined EPRI’s distributed energy resource management system (DERMS) with Schneider Electric’s advanced distribution management system (ADMS) to develop communication, information, and computation (CIC) layers that support system-level grid control. EPRI designed, built, and tested its open-source CIC infrastructure, enabling the team to improve interoperability and intelligent control of clean energy, grid edge devices.

Participants will receive an overview of INTEGRATE, presentations by the project team, and a tour of NREL's unique ESIF laboratories. Following the demonstration, a brainstorming session will be held for feedback and future project development.

Date

The technology demonstration and workshop will take place on March 29, 2017 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Agenda

See the agenda for details. Lunch will be served at noon and the ESIF tour will be held from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
