Introduction to GMLC Device Characterization Initiative

Now that you have been introduced to the DOE Grid Services Initiative, make sure to do the following:
Join us in Atlanta, GA on March 21-22 to discuss the importance of innovation on the grid and review DOE's draft recommendations on the Grid Services Characterization.
Step 2: Over the next Month, Review the DOE Draft Recommendations on the GLMC Website
Learn more about the project and watch out for the draft recommendations to be announced in February, with updates in March. Come to the Workshop ready to discuss these recommendations in more detail.

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.
