You've Participated in Previous GridWise Forum Webinars... Register for Today's April 25 GridWise Forum Series: Real-time Distributed Energy Resource Coordination with Packetized Energy Management 

Meeting Description:
The GridWise Alliance will sponsor a one-hour webinar introducing the scope and technical approach of the Grid Modernization Laboratory Consortium’s Characterization Initiation.  This webinar will provide you the context for the initiative, outline its scope, goals and objectives, and introduce the methods being proposed for its construction.
It's a great way to understand the relevance of this initiative to your organization and prepare your input and perspectives for the workshop! 
The GridWise Alliance, along with General Electric (GE) and Intel, is hosting a free industry workshop to develop a methodology for characterizing smart devices ability to provide valuable grid services. This workshop will be held in Atlanta, GA on March 21 and March 22 at the GE Grid Solutions Grid IQ Center and will facilitate collaboration between equipment manufacturers, grid services providers and utilities that is necessary to define, build and encourage widespread intelligent device adoption that will make our power grid more sustainable, efficient and resilient.
