Live Webinar Events

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 webinars on varying aspects of global grid modernization.  

Please note, the promotional period for IEEE Smart Grid Webinars will end Oct 2019. At that time, cost for attending a live webinar event (and the recording and slides) will be based on membership - all IEEE SG Participating Society members will not be charged.

Recent climate-change driven extreme weather events and natural hazards have placed resilience in the spotlight of key stakeholders and policy-makers in the power system community worldwide. There is a growing concern over the critical need to address and boost resilience to such black sky hazards. This webinar will share experiences and applications from relevant national and international research projects in the area of resilient power systems planning and operation. It will cover conceptual frameworks for better understanding the multi-faceted concept of resilience and advanced quantitative techniques based on specifically designed resilience metric systems, as well as risk-based and integrated planning approaches to support the decision-making on designing resilient power grids. The webinar will conclude with insights on activities from national and international professional bodies, further highlighting the recognition by the global power system community of the pressing need to move towards a more resilience-oriented engineering.

Transactive Energy (TE) will be an important technology enabler that will change today’s utility business models towards the utility of the future. TE will also affect future energy markets, driven by new technologies, such as, energy automation, distributed solar photovoltaic, distributed energy storage systems (DESS), smart metering, distributed energy resources (DER), and so one. However, current TE models lack the “trusted transactive layer” needed to implement new energy market dynamics capabilities. New concepts of “Utility-Grade Blockchain-DLT” technologies will be introduced to meet these future TE requirements, introducing a new trusted, transparent and traceable transactive layer to register and authenticate TE grid assets, transactions and participants.
This webinar will introduce new TE-Blockchain concepts and applications, review some regulatory aspects of Blockchain-DLT TE, including the ongoing work of the IEEE P2418.5 Blockchain Energy Standards WG, transactive energy task force. Read more.
