Overview

      Today’s electric grid accommodates a centralized power generating scheme, creating an inefficient electric load distribution system fed by point source power generation hubs that are responsible for sustaining the entire grid. This inefficient and archaic approach to electricity distribution is slowly changing with the emergence of two markets. The first development is the smart grid- an intelligent framework spread throughout the grid that allows real time measurement of grid electrical use and needs. The smart grid will allow electricity to be sent where it’s need most, when it’s needed most, and in an efficient and deliberate fashion. The second development is the implementation of non-point source power generation systems. De-centralized power systems such as solar panels on a house or wind turbines on farm land are changing the way in which more electricity is added to the grid and, consequently, how electricity flowing through the grid is managed.

                These two developments have extreme potential and promise for the electric grid. This meeting will focus on how recent developments, current challenges, and the future outlook of the integration of distributed power generation systems into the smart gird are view from both perspectives.

Discussion topics include but are not limited to:

§  Current Smart Grid Landscape

§  Current Distributed Generation Technology Landscape

§  How have smart grid developments and distributed generation developments coordinated with one another? Or not?

§  Is distributed generation integral in smart grid development? Visa Versa?

§  What common goals to smart grid development and distributed generation development have in common that they could collaborate on as industries?

§  What investment opportunities are open to large-scale distributed generation projects?

§  At what scale are these markets set to expand?
