The Conference will feature plenary sessions, panel sessions, technical papers, and tutorials by experts representing the electric utilities, regulators, technology providers, academia, the national laboratories, and both federal and state governments. This year’s theme is “10 years of ISGT – Innovation for a Flexible and Resilient Grid”
Call for paper
The tenth Conference on Innovative Smart Grid Technologies (ISGT 2019), sponsored by the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES), will be held on February 18-21, 2019 at the Grand Hyatt Washington, Washington DC with the theme “10 Years of ISGT – Innovation for a Flexible and Resilient Grid.”
ISGT 2019 is a forum to discuss the latest issues, trends, and emerging and innovative technologies for grid modernization in the face of challenges of a rapidly changing environment resulting from the dramatic increase in deployments of renewable and Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) and the emergence of new business and operating concepts and services. The elements of interest include prosumers, microgrids, aggregators, distribution markets, and platforms in the generation, commercialization, and management of electricity. The Conference will feature plenary sessions, panels, technical papers, and tutorials by experts on grid modernization, transmission and distribution systems planning and operations, DER integration, smart grid technologies and applications, and system integration. A key focus of ISGT is to facilitate in-depth discussions among the participants – sharing experiences and lessons learned, and raising the awareness and understanding of the latest concepts, applications, and technologies. In a departure from the format of previous years, all accepted papers will be presented in poster sessions. Also, to promote a more efficient and comprehensive engagement among participants, ISGT 2019 will make panel presentations and papers available online in advance of the conference to allow registrants time to prepare questions and comments for the presenters to address during the conference. The conference will also feature speakers and panelists from key federal and state government agencies and discuss ongoing activities, trends and recent developments in the regulatory and policy arena. The theme for this year will be “10 Years of ISGT – Innovation for a Flexible and Resilient Grid” with three tracks: 1) Transmission and Distribution systems planning and analysis, 2) technology applications and supporting tools for Transmission and Distribution system operations, and 3) market and policy considerations in facilitating innovation and enabling a flexible and resilient grid.
