The Smart Grid describes a next-generation electrical power system that is typified by the increased use of communications and information technology in the generation, delivery, and consumption of electrical energy worldwide.
IEEE Smart Grid hosts a series of complimentary webinars on varying aspects of grid modernization globally.


The Smart Grid Technology Development Strategy of Taiwan
Presented by Yenhaw Chen, Deputy Director - Taiwan Institute of Economic Research

Thursday, August 4, 2016 | 9:00am – 10:00am ET

In Taiwan, in corresponding to the policy of reducing CO2 emission, reforming current energy structure, and saving energy, the National Energy Program (NEP)- Smart Grid General Project Phase 1 was implemented. The objectives of this project are meant to enhance the robustness of the power grid, reduce greenhouse gas emission, increase the penetration rate of renewable energy and develop smart grid industry in Taiwan.

Towards Future Distribution System Operators: A UK Perspective
Presented by Luis (Nando) Ochoa, Professor, The University of Melbourne and The University of Manchester

Thursday, September 29, 2016 | 5:00 – 6:00pm EDT

With the proliferation of residential and utility scale renewable generation, the deployment of smart meters, and the future adoption of electric vehicles and storage technologies, there is no doubt that electricity distribution networks are at the heart of the Smart Grid revolution. This, however, will require the traditional distribution network operator (DNO) to evolve into an engaged, flexible distribution system operator (DSO) in which network elements and participants (consumers, generators, and those that do both) are actively managed to fulfill technical, economic, and environmental objectives. Key to this evolution is the provision of a forward-looking regulatory framework in which innovation must be encouraged.

Utility Microgrid Standard
Presented by John F. Kelly, PEER Program Specialist - Green Business Certification Institute

Thursday, October 27, 2016 | 1:00 – 2:00pm EDT

The electricity sector faces game-changing conditions driven by higher expectations from local governments and electricity customers, technology advances, and new policies that emphasis performance and customer participation. What if utilities chose to leverage microgrids and a more distributed framework; taking advantage of customer investment and new utility services to make the system better while increasing returns? This presentation will introduce a utility microgrid approach and standard as a means for addressing these industry forces.
