Staff Workshop for the Distributed Energy Resources Research Roadmap – Hosted by Gridworks

July 25, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm UTC-7

Gridworks is excited to be working with the California Energy Commission and Navigant Consulting in the development of the DER Research Roadmap. This meeting is the first in a series of public workshops to allow the distributed energy resources community to provide an opportunity to inform research priorities for the California Energy Commission’s EPIC program. By leveraging the deep experience of the community, this Roadmap seeks to identify early stage technology and ideas that will help California achieve its climate goals. This first workshop has a few key questions that we are seeking to answer:

  • Does the presented prioritization methodology provide a fair, efficient, and comprehensive approach to prioritizing potential research needs?
  • What research needs (beyond those identified by the Technical Assessment) should be considered by the Commission staff? Stakeholders are invited to sponsor suggestions both at the workshop and the post-workshop comment period.

This workshop provides a great opportunity for feedback on the methodology being used to screen potential projects as well as identify any gaps in the identified research in the Technical Assessment. Stakeholders will have an opportunity to submit additional research ideas during the comment period (until August 9).
