Energizing the Future – What Might the Future Electricity Grid Look Like?

What will the 2050 Grid look like and what pathways do we need to get there? How can the greatest engineering achievement of the 20th century be the driver of improvements of quality of life in the 21st century in America and globally? Should the grid be a platform for smart communities, cleaner energy, long distance transmission and distributed renewables? Which emerging technologies can contribute to grid resiliency, security, and efficiency? What changes should be considered to current regulatory frameworks to facilitate this transition? Please join our panel of industry and government experts as we discuss how these important issues will shape tomorrow’s electric grid.
