International Interest Group Planning International Interest Group

An online planning call to solidify short-term plans for the group, including a discussion of ideas for upcoming webcasts and the agenda for the 39th PLMA Conference in Minneapolis in May. We plan on introducing the “Country Of The Conference” concept for each PLMA conference, with the first being Japan – given both co-chairs have some experience in the country and there are several members in PLMA from Japan. Please join us to both hear thoughts from the group leadership as well as contribute your suggestions and ideas for contributing to the group goals.

Discover key considerations from two leading non-wires-alternatives (NWA) projects. This 85 MW project active since December 2016 is perhaps the most sophisticated DER-provided capacity and NWA project in North America. It incorporates demand response with battery storage available for up to 4 hours when dispatched in West Los Angeles Basin, including parts of Orange and Los Angeles Counties, in California. It was the first large-scale test of customer-sited resources for SCE and its size demonstrates that NWA projects can provide more extensive lessons learned.
