Chief Strategist Reimagine Power San Francisco, CA, United States
The panel will delve into macro- and micro- visions of increasing America’s energy resilience. National macro-grids are a focus of renewed attention as states aim to achieve aggressive clean energy targets and modernize with smart grid technologies. So, too, are community microgrids, supported primarily by renewable energy sources for their vast potential to bolster the resilience and reliability of a central grid by serving as backup when there are power outages. Panelists will discuss the importance of redundancy in the grid, and how in this case, a “think global, act local” approach actually can solve multiple challenges at the same time.
