The evolving smart grid, with increased use of renewable energy generation technologies, offers the potential for significant efficiency improvements through market-based transactive exchanges between energy producers and energy consumers. To understand this potential and support technology developers and policy makers, the smart grid community will require simulation tools and platforms that can be used to explore the impact of alternative ways to create and operate transactive energy systems. The purpose of this workshop is to design a future Transactive Energy (TE) Challenge that would challenge participants to create and demonstrate the viability of transactive energy simulation platforms andproblem solutions. The end goal is to generate results that would guide possible TE pilot projects.
This workshop will bring together diverse stakeholders and experts to share perspectives and identify: key grid problems which might be addressed using TE approaches, key modeling and simulation tools and platforms and key stakeholders in transactive energy research and technology development. Together the participants will work to shape a TE Challenge that will bring together the stakeholders, tools and technologies to tackle the challenges to advancing TE in order to deliver solutions for integration of distributed resources and load response for the grid.
Who Should Attend:
The TE Challenge Workshop will bring together leaders and experts from academia, utilities, ISOs / RTOs,companies and government (technologists, regulators, officials) to shape the Challenge.
