Emerging Trends Series: Interconnection Challenges and Solutions
February 25 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 amFree – $50
Across the Northeast, there are signs of an electric grid that isn’t keeping up with the needs of the clean energy transition. As deployment of distributed energy resources like solar and storage increases, developers, utilities, and regulators are grappling with how to reliably interconnect them. NECEC has been closely involved in interconnection proceedings across the region. NECEC’s Emerging Trends Series panel discussion, featuring business leaders and regulatory experts, will explore the barriers to improving the interconnection process and the potential near- and long-term solutions. If the Northeast is going to achieve its clean energy targets, the challenges facing interconnection must be overcome.
