Conferences would include a Smart Grid for Practitioners (SG4P) track, and SEC is being asked to contribute a 4-hour tutorial, possibly a panel discussion, or workshop. Two venues in development: –Buffalo, NY, October Renewable Energy Conference. Partnering with SUNY, Stony Brook. –NYC in March Stony Brook Advanced Energy Conference at NY Hilton. IEEE will provide both practical and academic tracks in collaboration with NYU-Polytech.
