Workshop 1: DER

Topic: Distributed Energy Resources (DER) in Alberta Canada
Date: 2018 October 15, Monday
Time: 8:00 am to 12:00 noon
Coordinator: Daniel Wong of AltaLink

The number of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) continues to grow in Alberta, Canada. This phenomenon is definitely global and spreading fast. Within our Electric Utility communities, we need to understand the characteristics and impacts of DER and their interconnections with the power grid. More importantly, we must manage the challenges of integrating DER in our power system and transform these challenges into new opportunities.
