NIST announces a “Transactive Energy” challenge (Sept 10-11)


On September 10-11, NIST in collaboration with federal partners and industry will host the NIST Transactive Energy Modeling and Simulation Challenge for the Smart Grid (TE) Kick-Off.

What is “transactive energy?”  It’s a way to organize the proliferating world of independent energy agents (sensor-enabled devices, distributed generation, energy storage, etc.)  in a way that won’t crash the one-way, centrally controlled grid that we want to connect them to.

The TE Challenge will bring researchers and companies with simulation tools together with utilities, product developers, and other grid stakeholders to create and demonstrate modeling and simulation platforms while applying TE approaches to real grid problems.

The products of the challenge will help industry understand the potential for TE and create a path for real-world trial implementations.

For more information on the challenge, please visit our TE Challenge Website.

Agenda:  Please see Draft Agenda (updated 8/28)

Online registration for the event:  All attendees must be pre-registered to gain entry to the NIST campus. Photo identification must be presented at the main gate to be admitted to the conference.  International attendees are required to present a passport. Attendees must wear their conference badge at all times while on the campus. There is no on-site registration for meetings held at NIST.

WEBCAST: Only the morning session (8:30am – 12:45pm ET) on day one will be webcast. The afternoon breakout sessions and day two will not be recorded. Please visit this page the morning of the workshop to access the Webcast Page.

Registration is not required to view the webcast. However, if you would like to register, and have a reminder and link to the webcast sent to you, you can do so at the TE Challenge Kickoff Webcast Registration Page. This registration link is only for webcast participation.
