IEEE Std 2030.5 is designed to support many different application domains. Arguably the greatest area of application interest emerging in technology deployments using IEEE Std 2030.5 is in the distributed energy resource area, specifically in distributed solar and wind systems using smart inverters. Government policies are being enacted in states such as California and Hawaii that require coordination of these responsive resource systems in order to address system operational concerns in regions with high penetrations of these resources. Attention to these issues encourages stakeholders to come together to seek alignment on standards, guides, and policies that address interoperability and the ease of integrating these systems. Close behind this immediate driver is community interest to address the coordinated operation of storage systems, electric vehicle charging, and demand response. While this attention should not diminish the application of IEEE Std 2030.5 to other integration scenarios, a set of priority responsive resource assets brings focus and substance to the scope of the roadmap effort. In addition, interactions between transmission level operations and distribution system operations has great influence on how customer-oriented assets are engaged in operation. This effort recognizes the importance that aggregated distribution level resources has with the transmission level interactions.
