The GridWise® Architecture Council and Smart Grid Oregon are pleased to announce that the Second International Conference and Workshop on Transactive Energy will be held on December 10-11, 2014 in Portland, Oregon at the World Trade Center.
The meeting brings together representatives of government, industry, utilities, vendor organizations and academia who have an interest in advancing transactive energy—an approach that combines economic and control techniques to improve power grid reliability and efficiency.
The 2014 conference will again be a partnership between the GridWise® Architecture Council (GWAC) and Smart Grid Oregon with support from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, the Bonneville Power Administration, Portland General Electric and others.
GWAC was formed by the Department of Energy to promote and enable interoperability among the many entities that interact with the nation’s electric power system. Organizers of the conference currently are identifying keynote and plenary speakers, developing the schedule, and expect to issue a call for papers in mid-April. Further information will become available on the GridWise Architecture Council website.
