Requirements for Microgrids and Energy Storage M23

Blog Post created by mwearley Employee on Jun 23, 2015

John Kovacik chaired the NEC DC task group. For the current cycle, the task group developed three proposed new articles for consideration by CMP 13. The new articles are:

  • Article 706-Energy Storage
  • Article 710-Microgrids
  • Article 712-DC Microgrids

CMP 13 created first revisions based on proposed new Articles 706 and 712. CMP 13 resolved the public input for Article 710. However, CMP 4 developed a first revision for Article 705 that would capture many of the requirements for stand-alone and intentionally islanded systems.


John's power point presentation is packed with useful information on the task group's work and the panels' disposition of the work. His presentation is now available in the mobile app for the 2015 Conference and Expo.
