Distributed energy resource technologies will be the topic of a Dec. 13 forum hosted by the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) at the Desmond Hotel and Conference Center in Albany, N.Y.

"The emergence and growth of technologies that enable decentralized power generation, energy storage and demand side management pose an array of opportunities and challenges for the electric system," says Stephen G. Whitley, NYISO president and CEO. "Our forum is intended to support the NYISO's review of distributed energy resource technologies, as well as discuss their market potential, customer motivations and the regulatory framework governing their interaction with the bulk electric system."

NYISO notes that the event will feature a keynote address by New York State Public Service Commission Chair Audrey Zibelman that will outline an overarching vision for distributed energy resources in New York state.

According to NYISO, the distributed energy resource workshop is free of charge, but registration must be received by Dec. 10 to participate in person. More information is available here.
