This Workshop will continue to build on the foundation laid at the 2015 NESC Summit, and will focus on future requirements for the NESC as it embarks on its second century of electrical safety. In addition to major changes to the NESC 2017 Edition, topics such as Distributed Energy Resources (DER), wind and solar generation, microgrids, wind loads, and resiliency will be discussed with both speaker and round table discussion formats. Check out the Preliminary Program.

With your participation, you can help drive the future direction of the NESC.
