Town hall dialogue: The next five years of interconnection innovation

October 25, 2023
Salon III/IV

Sponsored by:

The U.S. Department of Energy Interconnection Innovation e-Xchange (i2X) convened diverse stakeholders across the U.S. electricity ecosystem to formulate a practical 5-year Strategic Roadmap for implementing simpler, faster, and fairer interconnection processes while enhancing the reliability, resiliency, and security of our distribution and transmission grid networks. Through a series of virtual meetings covering key issues such as cost allocation, queue management, data transparency, equity, workforce, and grid engineering practices, the i2X team facilitated numerous open dialogues about important interconnection issues, knowledge gaps, practical short-term solutions, and few paradigm-shifting ideas. The result is a roadmap of the next five years of interconnection innovation for stakeholders by stakeholders.

In this town hall, the i2X leadership team will share the highlights of the 5-year Strategic Roadmap for discussions, feedback, and comments. 

This is your chance your chance to interact with the Department of Energy and I2X!
