The fifteenth Conference on Innovative Smart Grid Technologies, North America (ISGT NA 2024), sponsored by the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES), will be held at the Grand Hyatt in Washington DC, on February 19–22, 2024 under the theme “Innovations for Decarbonized Resilient Grid”.
The electric power system is undergoing a fundamental transformation fueled by historic investment in modernizing the transmission and distribution infrastructure and integrating Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) and technologies to enhance the grid resilience. These are driven primarily by the need for decarbonization, evolving customer needs, and need for flexible and resilient operation of the electricity grid in the face of resource variability, extreme natural events, and increasing occurrence of malicious cyber and physical attacks. These changes are resulting in an enormous increase in the system complexity, where the number of active control points in the grid is too high to be managed manually. Therefore, there is a need for innovation in design, integration, operation, testing, and evaluation of newer technologies and processes in order to enable and accelerate progress towards increased levels of automation under both normal and emergency grid conditions. Additionally, new structural and architectural constructs will be critical for allowing local decision-making which is a key steppingstone in realizing a “decarbonized resilient” grid.
ISGT NA 2024 is a forum to discuss the latest issues, trends, and innovative technologies for the decarbonized resilient grid of the future. The Conference will feature keynote and plenary sessions, panel sessions, and technical papers presented in poster sessions, as well as pre-conference tutorials.
