Save the Date: PAC day on grid transformation is May 23

ISO New England is planning a day-long event for the Planning Advisory Committee (PAC) called “Grid Transformation” to be held May 23, 2019, at the Doubletree Hotel in Westborough, Massachusetts. As part of the ongoing hybrid grid transformation, the ISO anticipates large-scale development of wind generation facilities, distributed energy resources (especially solar PV), energy storage (batteries and other types), demand response, and high-voltage DC transmission and flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS). The meeting will focus on the technical challenges and potential benefits presented by this grid transformation, as well as the potential solutions for addressing many of the changes the industry is facing. To that end, the ISO is inviting industry experts and stakeholders to engage in this discussion about grid transformation.

Additional details will follow over the month, including finalized speakers and panel session descriptions. Advanced registration is required and will be made available during the first week of April on the PAC page of the ISO website
