Next Generation Grid Data Architecture and Control Workshop
Sponsored by CURENT and NRECA
This workshop brought together leading utility, vendor, and research practitioners who shared their outlook and plans to respond to the changes. The workshop provided an opportunity for attendees to learn about and contribute their own perspectives on the data and control requirements for the future grid.

Distributed, smaller-scale, and flexible electric grid installations are driving change in the data and control layers of the electric grid. As energy is produced and consumed at finer resolutions, new control applications and services will be created. The analytics to drive these applications and services will necessarily rely on a data layer that helps stitch these systems into a loosely coupled yet reliable energy delivery system.
- Data challenges as perceived by the electric utility industry
- Vendor provided data solutions
- Information and control challenges from rapid DER growth
- Experiences and lessons learned from other sectors
Emphasis was placed on critical areas where breakout sessions explored:
- Upcoming challenges in future grid control
- Data analytics needed to address the future grid
- Likely areas of rapid information growth and interface needs to support them
