Agenda

 

Grid Integration is an increasingly critical issue as the demand for electricity rises along with the growing need for reliable and diverse sources of electricity. Although progress has been made to improve grid stability and resiliency, more needs to be done to integrate renewables, batteries, and vehicles into the electric grid. This conference will evaluate the challenges of grid integration and discuss viable solutions.
