Distributed Energy Resources, Microgrids and Grid Resiliency, Energy Storage, and Electric Vehicles*

Oct. 30, 2017 - Nov. 2, 2017 • $2,750

*Registration Deadline: September 15, 2017

This course provides an overview of Distributed Energy Resources (DER), microgrids, and some elements of DER, particularly different types of distributed generation (DG), energy storage (ES), electric and plugin hybrid vehicles (EVs and PHEVs), and DER Integration. The first section of the course provides an overview and discussion around the technologies and applications of DER and DG. The second section presents basics of microgrids, including recent GE experiences in microgrid feasibility studies. The third section is focused on energy storage applications ranging from frequency regulation to energy shifting, and as a demand response resource and an enabler of higher grid penetration of renewable energy. The last section of the course provides an introduction to EV and PHEV’s grid deployment, impact evaluation, and smart charging.

Distributed Energy Resources: Planning for High Penetrations*

Nov. 6, 2017 – Nov. 7, 2017 • $2,020

How do you plan for and manage a future grid with increased levels of distributed energy resources? This course covers technical, economic, and policy aspects of planning and operations. The course will also address the global lessons learned from integration of high penetrations of distributed solar and wind.

Smart Grid: Demand Response and Dynamic Pricing*

Nov. 13, 2017 – Nov. 16, 2017 • $2,750

*Registration Deadline: September 22, 2017

Get an in-depth understanding of Demand Response and Dynamic Pricing as important elements of Smart Grid program deployment; gain comprehensive insights on relevant economic, regulatory, and policy issues; learn more about the development and structure of retail demand response and dynamic pricing programs and participation of demand resources in ISO/RTO wholesale markets of energy, capacity, and ancillary services; and understand the latest issues on the integration of demand resources into the smart grid.

Fundamentals of Renewable Energy Systems*

Nov. 27, 2017 – Nov. 30, 2017 • $2,750

*Registration Deadline: September 29, 2017

Attend a global leader’s look at the comprehensive essentials of renewable energy power systems (wind and photovoltaics), as well as basic knowledge of systems engineering for planning and design of reliable and cost-effective wind and utility-scale solar power plants.  Participants will learn about the behavior and economics of power systems with substantial amounts of renewable energy generation.
