Open Access Technology International, Inc. (OATI) is sending recognized industry professionals to lend knowledge and experience at the upcoming Electric Utility Consultants, Inc. (EUCI) training session series on the new transactive energy paradigm.
Minneapolis, MN:  June 09, 2016 – OATI is pleased to announce its participation in the new EUCI training course series for industry professionals, “Transactive Energy Fundamentals” from June 23-24, 2016 in San Diego, California.

The electric industry has been experiencing a shift toward generating energy from renewable resources, utilizing demand-side participation, and promoting grid resiliency. At the center of these changes is the concept of transactive energy. Transactive energy aims to find the best method of seamlessly integrating independent energy agents into the larger centralized grid. Some of these agents include solar panels, wind turbines, and end-use devices like smart thermostats. The sessions will cover the fundamental concepts and driving forces behind transactive energy.

Dr. Farrokh Rahimi, Senior Vice President, Market Design and Consulting and Dr. Ali Ipakchi, Vice President of Smart Grid and Green Power at OATI will leverage decades of industry experience to lead their respective training courses at the event. Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss the various regulatory and technological changes within the industry and how they can use it to benefit their daily business processes.

“OATI has made it a priority to be up-to-date with the new transactive energy framework.” said Rahimi. “We look forward to collaborating with other industry professionals and contributing to the greater conversation on transactive energy.”
