The Second International Conference and Workshop on Transactive Energy will address transactive energy methods and systems for the electric grid, buildings and facilities, and grid integration on Dec. 10 and 11 at the World Trade Center in Portland, Oregon. 
Abstracts for proposed papers are due by Sept. 19.  More details on topics of interest are available at   Abstracts can be submitted by uploading them at that link.
The 2014 conference is a partnership between the GridWiseŽ Architecture Council (GWAC) and Smart Grid Northwest (formerly Smart Grid Oregon), with support from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), the Bonneville Power Administration, Portland General Electric and others.  Sponsorship opportunities are also available and can be seen at
Keynote speakers for this year’s conference include:
•    BPA Administrator Elliot Mainzer
•    David Owens, Executive Vice President of Business Operations and Regulatory Affairs at the Edison Electric Institute
•    Carl Zichella, Director of Western Transmission, Energy Program at the Natural Resources Defense Council.

In addition to a GWAC-organized plenary session on recent U.S. developments in transactive energy, this year’s meeting will also feature an international panel with participants from Australia, Europe and elsewhere speaking about their current use of and future plans for transactive energy techniques. 
The meeting brings together representatives of government, industry, utilities, vendor organizations and academia who have an interest in advancing transactive energy—an approach that combines economic and control techniques to improve power grid reliability and efficiency.
Reliable Controls A major outcome of last year’s conference was significant progress on the Transactive Energy Framework document (, a draft of which was issued in November 2013. The report outlines key transactive energy concepts, drivers, architectures and terminology and, as envisioned, will serve as a baseline document for advancing transactive energy. GWAC accepts comments on the document on an ongoing basis.  Comments may be submitted to the GWAC website or e-mailed to,
