QualityLogic IEEE 2030.5 CA Rule 21 Workshop

Hosted by Intertek
NOVEMBER 13 - 14, 2019
Menlo Park, CA

About This Workshop


By January 22, 2020, any smart inverters or gateways to utilities for communicating with them must be certified to the CA Rule 21 CSIP requirements. Time is running out if your products are subject to these requirements. 

And implementing IEEE 2030.5 isn’t simple. Our analysis shows that 18 (out of 30) IEEE 2030.5 Function Sets will need to be implemented to satisfy the Common Smart Inverter Profile (CSIP) for CA Rule 21.

This 2-day workshop presented by QualityLogic and hosted by Intertek will help you get over the hurdles that IEEE 2030.5 implementation presents. It will also provide you with a solid and practical technical understanding of IEEE 2030.5 and CSIP.

In addition to the training from QualityLogic, you'll receive an introduction to Intertek’s certification services and global solutions for total quality assurance.

Join us in sunny California November 13 and 14 at Intertek's Menlo Park offices located at:

1365 Adams Ct, Menlo Park, CA 94025

This two day workshop is only $1,695. Register today!
