(Salt Lake City, UT) — Today at an awards ceremony, the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) honored the winners of its annual 3iAwards, a prestigious national search for best of 2019 in Innovation, Ingenuity and Inspiration in renewable energy and…
As we celebrate our 37th year, we invite you to join us for our annual 3iAwards ceremony, honoring the Best of 2019 in renewable energy and energy efficiency at Solar Power International 2019.
IREC’s 2019 edition of its Model Interconnection Procedures reflect the latest evolution in best practices to facilitate higher penetrations of distributed energy resources (DERs) on the grid, integrating new technologies while maintaining grid safety and reliability.
Nevada is one of a handful of states to adopt legislation directing its public service commission and regulated investor-owned utility to initiate a comprehensive distribution resource planning (DRP) reform effort.
Over the last three years, IREC has been involved in proceedings before the Minnesota Commission focused on tools to enhance the transparency of Xcel Energy’s distribution grid.
If you missed our inaugural IREC Vision Summit in March 2019, you missed an extraordinary gathering of clean energy influencers. As an outcome, our collective goals and intention are articulated in a Vision Principles document, available now for your organization (and you as an individual) to sign in support.
IREC is developing more than 25 online training modules for the U.S. Department of Energy Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) administrative staff expected to be ready in early 2020.
UPDATED August 26, 2019: Since this post was first published (June 2019), the Montana Public Service Commission heard and voted to deny NorthWestern Energy’s motion for reconsideration of the commission’s June decision to allow storage to be used in a net metered (NEM) system. The commission’s order made clear that it has the authority to interpret Montana’s NEM statute to allow a broad range of technologies.
The Forum on Inverter Grid Integration Issues (FIGII) is an ad-hoc consortium of technical experts from inverter manufacturers, national labs, utilities and consultants. It seeks to address long-term barriers to high penetration of inverter-based distributed energy resources (DER). A Guide…
