The Grid 3.0 Workshop builds on the success of the November 13, 2015 Electricity Sector Issues Roundtable: Grid 3.0 and Beyond, which was organized by a partnership of six government and industry organizations and is part of a planning process that aims to help shape the grid's future. The next step in this planning process is the Grid 3.0 Workshop, which is designed to dive in deeper into the interoperability challenges identified at the Roundtable and to work collaboratively to develop the action plans needed to overcome these challenges.
In this context, "Grid 1.0" can be thought of as the legacy grid of the 20th century, "Grid 2.0" is the emergence of the smart grid with automation and information technology improvements, and "Grid 3.0" is what comes next: for example, a future grid with advanced grid operations and greater interactions with consumers and other infrastructures. The Grid 3.0 Workshop will bring together experts from a variety of stakeholders including utilities, ISOs / RTOs, regulators, federal agencies, manufacturers and researchers to key topics emerging from the Roundtable discussion, such as: Resilience; Reliability (including efficiency and sustainability); Emerging and evolving markets; New actors in the grid ecosystem; and the Pace of technology innovation. The Workshop will have plenary sessions and theme-organized breakout sessions, to be determined.
