IEEE International Technology Roadmap of Power Electronics for Distributed Energy Resources (ITRD)
Distributed energy resources are rapidly growing in grids with power electronics technologies enabling additional functionalities and value-added services. The Power Electronics Society has launched the project to develop the IEEE International Technology Roadmap of Power Electronics for Distributed Energy Resources (ITRD). This International Roadmap will form working groups in distributed energy resources, coordinate with the IEEE Roadmapping Project, IEEE Technical Societies, and other stakeholders to produce a roadmap that will provide reference and guidance to engineers in power electronics by identifying the future research, technology developments, and applications of distributed energy resources. The ITRD is dedicated to providing a reliable and comprehensive roadmap serving academia, industry, national labs, and research organizations.
The PELS ITRD group is currently calling for stakeholders from industry (manufacturers, technology providers, consultants, and utilities), national labs and research institutions, academia/students and professional associations to work together to provide guidance and foresight for distributed energy resources and begin the development of working groups to produce a background whitepaper in this focus area.
