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.  PELS has launched a 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 and coordinate with the IEEE Roadmapping Project, IEEE Technical Societies, and other stakeholders to produce a roadmap that will provide guidance to engineers in power electronics.  It will identify the future research, technology developments, and applications of distributed energy resources.  ITRD is dedicated to providing a reliable and comprehensive roadmap to serve academia, industry, national labs, and research organizations.

An Introduction to ITRD


How to Get Involved

The PELS ITRD group is currently calling for stakeholders from the industry (consultants, manufacturers, technology providers, utilities), national labs, 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.

To become a contributing member:

  1. Provide a brief resume showing your technical background and how it qualifies you to make a contribution to the development of the Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap (one-page maximum).
  2. Indicate the area of the roadmap activity that you would like to concentrate your contribution.

The PELS ITRD group will then forward this information to the appropriate contact within ITRD.  For any questions, please contact the PELS ITRD group.
