October 29, 2013 – IEEE is hosting a workshop addressing the full revision of 1547 “Standard for Interconnecting Distributed Resources with Electric Power Systems”, and is inviting public utility commissions (PUCs), utilities, manufacturers and independent power producers worldwide to New Brunswick, N.J., December 3-4, to help shape the direction of the revised standard.

IEEE 1547 was first published in 2003, explained Dick DeBlasio, chair of IEEE Standards Coordinating Committee (SCC) 21 on Fuel Cells, Photovoltaics, Dispersed Generation and Energy Storage. “Now, 10 years later, IEEE 1547 is ready for a comprehensive refresh…”

From collaboration in the December workshop, SCC 21 will develop a request to launch an IEEE working group to complete a revision of 1547 by 2018.
