The Grid Engineering for Accelerated Renewable Energy Deployment (GEARED), program was created to build a training and education framework that grows the expertise and preparedness of current and future electric utility sector professionals – specifically to accommodate high penetrations of solar electricity and other distributed technologies. An in-person peer review meeting was held in October 2016 to discuss and evaluate the GEARED program. The GEARED Peer Review Report details the proceedings of the event and summarizes the recommendations of the reviewers.
