Utilities of the Future: October 4 at the U.S. Navy Memorial

Utilities of the Future: October 4, 2018Register now for Utilities of the Future: How to Modernize the Grid and Decarbonize Our Energy System, the 3rd Resilient Virginia and Leaders in Energy Educational Forum.

New technologies and policies are leading to substantial changes in the energy sector.  How can the Utilities of the Future be a key driver in decarbonizing our energy system?  How will the future electric grid enable customers to change how they purchase and sell energy?

This Leaders in Energy event, in partnership with Resilient Virginia, will explore these questions and related topics (see these listed below) to examine pathways to a new paradigm for the electric grid.  Our industry experts are from the Edison Electric Institute, the Environmental Defense Fund, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)  Energy Initiative.

This will be an excellent opportunity to meet those in our Leaders in Energy community who are interested in and working on these issues.  See the recap article here on our utility event last year at the Edison Electric Institute last year to learn more about this popular event.
