Chair: Al Hefner, NIST

The role of SGIP DRGS and PAP 7 in coordinating development of interoperable standards for DER Interconnection and Testing will be reviewed. The use of DER interconnection standards and need for advancement due to rapidly increasing DER penetration and inverter functionality will be presented, and an update will be given on ongoing and completed DER interconnection standards projects. The Use Case development needed to define operation and information exchange related to these new standards will also be introduced. The accelerating development of interconnection standards also requires corresponding development of specifications for conformance tests, implementation, and interoperability. The landscape of current practices for DER test and implementation will be reviewed, and an update will be given on ongoing test and implementation standards and codes development projects.  The session will conclude with an open discussion of how the interrelation of interconnection, testing and implementation standards and codes may change in response to the transition to high penetration of DER and increase use of power-electronic (e.g., smart inverter) interconnection equipment.
