IREC Vision Summit
The IREC Vision Summit is a one-day visionary exploration of what’s needed to make our nation’s bold clean energy goals a reality. The Summit brings together clean energy stakeholders for a deep dive into policies and practices that are essential for all Americans to benefit from clean energy. This year’s Vision Summit will explore critical clean energy interconnection issues and elevate key solutions.
The interconnection of distributed energy resources (DERs), like solar and energy storage, is a foundational element of the transition to a 100% clean, equitable, and resilient energy future. While significant barriers to interconnection on the distribution grid persist across the U.S., many innovative solutions are being developed and deployed, from improved screening and study processes, to fairer grid upgrade cost allocation methods. Well-designed interconnection policies can enable more equitable access to sustainable energy, as well as the development of critical resilience tools like microgrids, that help communities weather and recover from natural disasters.
The IREC Vision Summit 2023 will bring together interconnection leaders from across the nation, as well as those new to interconnection but interested in its significance to clean energy and climate goals. Attendees will gain practical skills to support effective distribution interconnection reform in the U.S. and will build and strengthen relationships with other interconnection stakeholders.
