Breakout Session: Solar in the Connected Building

May 21, 2014 5:15PM to 6:15PM PDT


This session will explore the technologies, processes, and policies needed for interconnection and integrated operation of solar power at any penetration level. Panelists will discuss the optimization and technology needs in order for solar power to interconnect and operate sustainably. Join us to explore the pathways through which solar penetration can be optimized across various environments, including integration with loads and other power sources at the building and microgrid levels.
