The Interconnection Innovation e-Xchange (i2X) develops innovative solutions to enable faster, simpler, and fairer interconnection of solar energy, wind energy, and energy storage, while enhancing the reliability and resilience of our nation’s distribution and transmission grid networks. The program is led by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) and Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO) with the support of several national laboratories, including the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL).  BGS staff, Ammar Qusaibaty, Cindy Bothwell, and Shay Banton, provide technical expertise to help DOE, the national laboratories, and the i2x partners and stakeholders develop solutions to interconnection challenges.
