IEEE 1547 Standard and DER Interconnection

Please join NCS PES/IAS (Edmonton area) for “IEEE 1547 Standard and DER Interconnection” event:
Many countries have implemented renewables portfolio standards (RPSs) to accelerate the pace of deployment of renewables generation, which are distributed across the distribution power system. As the penetration of renewable power generation increases, electricity grids are beginning to experience challenges, which are []

Grid Energy Storage: Policies and Applications

Alberta established the regulatory framework for its electric system when generators and loads were clearly differentiated. Energy storage facilities are blurring those distinctions with their ability to rapidly switch between supplying electricity to the grid and withdrawing electricity from it. Requests to connect energy storage facilities to the transmission system have prompted the Alberta Electric []
