In 2022, after a two year hiatus, Nor-Cal Controls hosted the return of Solar & Storage Operations Training (SSOT)!
The three training courses that were held in May, August, and November proved to be far more successful than what was anticipated. Attendees received hands on experience that increased their knowledge of the renewable energy industry regarding topics and principles that can be applied to SCADA systems of any hardware and software platforms. Topics included an introduction to SCADA, networking overview, NERC & Cybersecurity, EMS, BESS, as well as power plant controller functionality and monitoring. Additionally, SSOT trainings included a happy hour networking event and a tour of Nor-Cal Control’s very own fabrication shop.
For 2023, SSOT will be returning:
March 7 – 9
All SSOT trainings will be held at the Holiday Inn Conference room in the El Dorado Hills Town Center, of
El Dorado Hills, CA. For a listing of things to do while attending SSOT and/or visiting the area, please check out our “Around Town” guide.
“The SSOT trainings were more successful than I had expected, and we plan to carry that momentum forward by expanding them to a large-scale knowledge sharing event for more companies in the industry to attend and share their expertise. In August, Nor-Cal is excited to announce our very first conference called the Solar & Storage Operations Conference (SSOC)”
- Trevor Grossi, Account Manager & Training Coordinator at Nor-Cal Controls
Trevor Grossi, who is responsible for bringing life back to SSOT last year, is looking forward to adding the Solar & Storage Operations Conference (SSOC) to the line-up of Nor-Cal’s hosted offerings in 2023. SSOC is a two-day exclusive knowledge sharing & networking event for top industry EPCs, owners, and battery manufacturers that will be held August 16- 17, 2023, at the Hardrock Hotel & Casino in the backdrop of beautiful South Lake Tahoe.
“Empowering Energy Innovation” will be the theme of the conference and Nor-Cal will be presenting topics to include SCADA and Energy Management Systems (EMS).” SSOC will also include in the presenter series other thought leaders from the industry.
A few of the guest presenters who will be in attendance will include our SSOT partner RadianGen who will speak on NERC/CIP Compliance and Cybersecurity. Flow Software will also be discussing data analytics from an architectural and strategic perspective. And many more presenters are to be announced in the upcoming months! Registered attendees will also be invited to a Happy Hour Networking event on the first day of the conference along with other activities in store.
Everyone is invited to attend! Nor-Cal encourages past and future SSOT attendees to register as the conference will be a continuation of the training topics and principles that were covered in SSOT with the focus being on knowledge sharing and exclusive networking opportunities with and for top industry leaders.
