EBC & YPE ISO New England Site Visit & Tour
April 30, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
Please join the EBC Ascending Professionals Committee and the Young Professionals in Energy (YPE) Boston Chapter for a tour of the ISO New England Master Control Center located in Holyoke, MA this Spring of 2019!
ISO New England is the independent, not-for-profit organization authorized by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to oversee the day-to-day operation of New England’s electric power generation and transmission system, administer the region’s competitive wholesale electricity markets, and manage comprehensive regional power system planning.
The tour will include an overview of ISO New England and its three critical roles, as well as an update on regional energy issues. Attendees will also have an opportunity to view the ISO’s state-of-the-art master control center where the ISO’s certified system operators monitor, dispatch, and direct the flow of electricity across the power grid 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Following the tour, an informal gathering will occur at a restaurant / brewery nearby. For more information, please contact Jackson Bailey, EBC Marketing & Program Manager, at [email protected].
