Transactive Energy Conference 2014

World Trade Center

Portland, Oregon 97204, US (map)



The electric grid system runs on software and those software functions are expanding in response to more solar and wind in the grid.

The GridWise® Architecture Council and Smart Grid Northwest are pleased to announce that the Second International Conference and Workshop on Transactive Energy will be held on December 10-11, 2014 in Portland, Oregon at the World Trade Center.

Capacity is limited and regular ticket prices end on December 7 when late registration prices go into effect.

The meeting brings together representatives of government, industry, utilities, vendor organizations and academia who have an interest in advancing transactive energy—an approach that combines economic and control techniques to improve power grid reliability and efficiency.

This year the event has a variety of worthwhile activities for energy professionals, policy makers and anyone interested in the value revolution of intelligent electricity. The conference will feature keynote talks from energy industry leaders, international expert panels, presentations of selected papers on topics critical to the success of transactive energy. There will also be four different interactive workshops where attendees can discuss and develop answers to important questions about the future of intelligent electricity.

The 2014 conference will again be a partnership between the GridWise® Architecture Council (GWAC) and Smart Grid Northwest with support from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, the Bonneville Power Administration, Portland General Electric, and others.

GWAC was formed by the Department of Energy to promote and enable software interoperability among the many entities that interact with the nation's electric power system.
