2019 Innovative Smart Grid Technologies NA

The theme of the conference this year was “10 years of ISGT – Innovation for a Flexible and Resilient Grid.”

The 10th annual Conference on Innovative Smart Grid Technologies (ISGT 2019), sponsored by the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES), was held 17-20 February 2019 at the Hyatt Regency in Washington D.C.
The conference program includes plenary and panel sessions, technical papers, and tutorials by experts representing the electric utilities, regulators, technology providers, academia, the national laboratories, and both federal and state governments.

Probably the most important events were the plenary session - one each day of the conference as follows:

  • Past and future trends in smart grid
  • Technology solutions for evolving energy industry
  • Market and policy considerations in facilitating innovation and enabling a flexible & resilient grid

The one of specific interest to the PAC community was the session on Technology Solutions that featured Dr. Edmund Schweitzer, president and chairman of SEL and Dr. Damir Novosel, the immediate past chairman of IEEE PES.  The main social event was the conference reception, which was combined with the poster sessions.
