Registered Apprenticeships Toolkit for Clean Energy Employers
Registered Apprenticeship Programs (RAPs) are a key tool for developing, scaling, and sustaining a diverse pipeline of trained talent ready to power the transition to a clean energy future. This toolkit is intended to provide employers and other stakeholders with the background information and supplemental resources needed to implement RAPs to develop a clean energy workforce.
IEEE 1547™-2018 Adoption Tracker
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers 1547™-2018 Standard (IEEE 1547-2018) is a technical standard that establishes how distributed energy resources (DERs)—like solar and energy storage—can connect to the grid. In particular, it establishes interconnection requirements for smart inverters, which have advanced “grid support” functions that can help the grid accommodate higher levels of renewable energy. IREC’s IEEE 1547-2018 Adoption Tracker provides regulators, utility staff, and other DER stakeholders with visibility into which jurisdictions have adopted the IEEE 1547-2018 standard.
