IEEE Collaborates with Utilities to Create Standardized Education Program to Prepare for the Future of Grid Support

The MarketWatch News Department was not involved in the creation of this content.

IEEE collaborated with Baltimore Gas and Electric Company (BGE), Commonwealth Edison (ComEd), Dominion Energy, Duke Energy and Orange and Rockland Utilities (O&R), and will be creating a program to identify, train and certify individuals for the commissioning of any installed DER interconnection (e.g., residential, utility-scale, microgrid, etc.). The goal is to enhance compliance with IEEE 1547 – IEEE Standard for Interconnection and Interoperability of Distributed Energy Resources with Associated Electric Power Systems and local jurisdictional requirements. Additionally, the program seeks to standardize the process by which the interconnections of renewables and other DERs are assessed.
