Overview
SOIG

The scope of the Strategic Options for Integrating Emerging Technologies and Distributed Energy Interest Group (SOIG) is to study, evaluate, and demonstrate emerging technologies and practices in power generation. This includes the integration of distributed, intermittent, and emerging generation technologies and the enablers of these new generation technologies -storage, flexibility, and demand response. Together, these technologies will result in an increase in the clean and renewable supply of electricity, diversification of supply, and reductions of greenhouse gas emissions.

The Interest Group enables its participants to enhance their knowledge via information exchange as well as through project co-funding opportunities that will lead to the development of practical innovations that can readily be applied to today’s challenges.

Topics & Ideas:

  • Renewable Energy
  • Distributed Energy
  • Energy Storage
  • GHG Mitigation
  • Sustainable Transportation
  • Bioenergy
Program Services
  • Networking & Information Sharing

    • Annual face-to-face Business Meetings with webinar call-in options
    • 4-5 conference calls and learning webinars
    • Access to a network of ~1,000 electrical utility peers from around the world
  • Industry Benchmarking

    • Requests for Information where your questions or concerns are circulated to other group
      participants with rapid-fire response rates
    • Internal benchmarking surveys for state-of-the-industry intelligence
  • Collaborative Technical Projects

    • The flexibility to support only those projects which are relevant to your organization, meaning you know exactly, where your research dollars are going
    • Supported by CEATI management, participating utilities and consultants work together across all phases of a project’s life-cycle, ensuring your organization receives practical, high-quality deliverables
  • Unparalleled Return on Investment

    • Ability to split project funding costs with other organizations, resulting in highly-leveraged funding opportunities
    • Reduced pricing on published reports, training courses, and industry-open conferences
