The National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) and the Georgia Public Service Commission, in collaboration with NIST, are holding a meeting on September 12, 2018 to discuss revisions and updates to the NIST Smart Grid Interoperability Framework. At this meeting a microgrid-focused smart grid scenario will be used as the foundation for discussion. The microgrid scenario considers two types of microgrids—one that is organized and managed by a customer or non-utility third party, and another that is organized and managed by a utility. This workshop will feature speakers from across the Southeast discussing the role of interoperability, and how interoperability addresses issues in the Southeastern grid by enabling new interactions between grid devices at different system levels. Attendees will also provide feedback to workshop organizers regarding topics important to the region. Pre-read material will be available in advance of the workshop.
