CPI - Regional Training on Integrated Distribution System Planning for Midwest/MISO Region
Tuesday, October 13 (12:30pm) - Thursday, October 15, 2020 (4:30pm US/Central)
The Organization of MISO States, National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners, National Association of State Energy Officials, and Berkeley Lab invite public utility commissions and state energy offices in the Midwest/MISO region to participate in a virtual training on integrated distribution system planning October 13-15, 2020, 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central each day. Registration for the training is now open. Please see the agenda below.
Participants will receive a certificate of completion for the training. While we encourage you to attend all three half-days of training, we understand that you may not be able to attend every module.
The last training for this region was held 2-1/2 years ago. The October training will feature new, expanded, and updated content on the following topics:
• Distribution systems and operations — including integration, management and control of distributed energy resources (DERs), operational coordination with bulk power systems (BPS), and cybersecurity
• Integrated distribution system planning processes — including coordination with BPS planning, emerging DER analyses, planning for resilience and grid modernization, and state regulatory practices for distribution planning
• Demand flexibility — including impact of DERs on net load shapes, grid-interactive efficient buildings, and planning for energy storage and electric vehicles
Presentations from our March 2020 training for Southeast states are posted on LBNL's website. Training will continue over the next year for other regions — West and Mid-Atlantic/New England. Attendees of prior regional trainings have included public utility commissioners, state energy office directors, and their staff working on grid modernization and distribution planning issues.
