This major online workshop by ESIG, NAGF, NERC and EPRI will cover the important relationships between interconnection process reforms and new standards for inverter-based resources. The workshop will provide education on both topics and how they interact for improving the generation interconnection process and ensuring more economic, sustainable, and reliable operation of the future grid.


Interconnection queues around the U.S. are backlogged by approximately 1,500 GW of generation projects facing multi-year study delays. FERC recently issued two proposed rulemakings to address some of these challenges—“Building for the Future Through Electric Regional Transmission Planning and Cost Allocation and Generator Interconnection" and “Improvements to Generator Interconnection Procedures and Agreements"—with comments to FERC due this fall.


Separately, recent NERC Disturbance Reports have indicated gaps in interconnection studies, modelling, and interconnection requirements for inverter-based resources (IBRs). Also, the new IEEE 2800 standard for “Interconnection and Interoperability of Inverter-Based Resources Interconnecting with Associated Transmission Electric Power Systems" has recently been approved and, if used, will provide additional benefits for both reliability and the interconnection study process.


This timely online workshop will show the important relationships between these topics, as well as provide technical understanding of each topic area, in a way that will facilitate constructive discussion and thoughtful feedback prior to the upcoming FERC comment deadlines. While panelists will include engineering and technical experts on each topic, the workshop is intended for a broad engineering, policy, and decision maker audience.


The workshop includes three half-day online sessions on August 9, 10 and 11. Participation in all three days is recommended but not required. You will need to register separately for each half-day session you plan to attend. We will provide materials and recordings to all sessions for those that registered at the conclusion of the workshop. There is no charge for the workshop.
