The penetration of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) on the distribution networks of Western Canada will soon rapidly increase as the shift to the cleaner, smarter and more distributed future electricity systems accelerate.

Attend this session, moderated by Asanga Gunatillaka, Director of Renewables, ATCO Power Ltd., with John Kehler, Senior Technical Advisor, Transmission Performance and Planning, Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) and Mark Presti, President, NLS Engineering to hear about the key technical issues being considered and addressed in preparation for this future in Alberta.

By attending this session, participants will gain an understanding of the implications that increased levels of DER have for the distribution network, the changes that will need to be enacted by integrators, distribution facility operators and transmission system operators and the corresponding processes and timelines for enacting these changes to ensure the continued safe and reliable operation of distribution networks.
