Global Load Management Interest Group

Israel's utility grid is isolated from those of its neighboring countries and is constructed as an "energy island." This situation poses significant challenges that impact future energy planning decisions, including how the Israel Electric Corporation (IEC) (Israel's largest supplier of electric power and only integrated electric utility) can best implement a smart grid system in general, and integrate renewable energy in particular.

 Of particular relevance to U.S. organizations:
The Israel Electric Corporation's focus on grid resilience and cyber-security.

In this Load Management Dialogue, presenters from Israel Electric Corporation and PLMA member company EGM Inc., will review these challenges and discussion proposed solutions. Topics will include the following:

  • Development of the Israeli utility grid
  • Israeli grid challenges
  • Evolution of utility grid technology in Israel
  • A future vision for Israel's utility grid including integration of renewable technology, storage, and EV charging stations
  • An overview of EGM's technology and products
  • The collaboration between EGM and IEC to integrate the Smart Grid and DER
