Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at the Grid Transformation Workshop, an advanced technology review jointly sponsored by NERC, the North American Generator Forum (NAGF) and the Energy Systems Integration Group (ESIG).  The attendees explored a range of carbon-free technologies which show promise of acceptable grid performance at reasonable prices as fossil-fuel resource capacity declines.

The widespread adoption of highly distributed eco-friendly generation has introduced a series of new BES reliability challenges.  Policy makers, NERC, and the industry are addressing them as they arise; and will continue to do so until the transition stabilizes.
