Title: Communities of Profit VS Communities of Purpose…and other Grid Myths

It can’t be done. We can’t get there from here. It’s too risky. We have nothing in common. Most people (and organizations) walk away when these statements arise, but DOE often uses them as a test for when to push forward.

DOE is not a monolithic organization but rather a collection of communities with specific purposes, and sometimes only united at the very top of DOE’s mission statement: to ensure America’s security and prosperity by addressing its energy, environmental and nuclear challenges through transformative science and technology solutions.  The one thing DOE is not is a community of profit, but no solutions to America’s energy challenges can succeed without profit as a motivation.  Get three perspectives from within DOE on what unites us, what divides us, and how to forge a common purpose.

GWAC Foundational Session: Architecting a Resilient Grid

The GridWise Architecture Council introduces the 7 workshops of this conference and their relationship to Future States of our rapidly transforming energy systems.

Drivers of Change: Panel and Workshop

Profound changes to our energy system are being driven by decarbonization, distributed systems, expansion of distributed energy resources, the advancement of related technologies, and now a global pandemic.  What are primary drivers of change and where will they impact the future of an integrated grid at all scales? How big will the transformation be in the near and long term?

System Design and Architecture: Panel and Workshop

What steps are needed to support the transition from a centralized to a decentralized grid based on highly coordinated self-optimization? How does the electric grid integrate with other infrastructures like water and gas through smart buildings and smart cities? How can Grid Architecture accelerate pragmatic action?

8:00am - 9:30am (Pacific)
System Implementation Strategies and Examples: Panel and Workshop

In recent years, a number of states, municipalities, utilities, NGO’s and corporations have engaged in putting transactive energy theory into practice around the globe. This topic will revisit some of these implementations, the lessons learned, and discuss the interdependence of the electric grid and the communication networks that are necessary to monitor and coordinate actions on the grid and how to build explicit, well-defined, trust models that define identity, authentication, service-level agreements, and privacy into TE systems.

10:00am - 11:30am (Pacific)
Business Models and Value Realization: Panel and Workshop

What does it take to create value for participants? How do different systems assign risk, cost and value to stakeholders? What do our transactive energy systems incentivize? Where should the focus be for the next transactive system implementations?

Resilience: Panel and Workshop

Some qualities of the power system by their nature improve the resilience of the system, and these qualities may be provided by transactive or non-transactive systems. What resilience benefits can a flexible and adaptive grid provide by incorporating transactive systems?

Regulation and Policy: Panel and Workshop

How do legislation and regulation support or limit transactive energy implementations today? What’s working well? What changes are needed and what should the industry do to encourage alignment of policy and regulatory measures to create a more flexible and interactive grid?

Visions for Participation: Panel and Workshop

A future grid will have many transactive systems and may include buildings, microgrids, campuses, smart cities and active residential participation. What models for participation will be possible and necessary?
