Member Webinar: Electrification and the Grid
Thursday, December 10, 2020
2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EST
As buildings, transportation and manufacturing move toward electrification, the U.S. electric grid will need to adapt to the demands of this new electrified economy. Significant investment in the grid will be required to support increased electric demand and connect distributed energy resources.
Our speaker, Norman C. Bay, former Chairman of FERC and Head of the Energy Regulatory and Enforcement Group, Willkie Farr & Gallagher, LLP, will address what challenges the North American electric grid faces with increased electrification and the ways which our industry can rise to meet them.
