Online Event: Grid Modernization
You are cordially invited to the second session in the Energy Innovation Series, on Grid Modernization. The Energy Innovation Series is conducted by the CSIS Energy Security and Climate Change Program with input and support from the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Technology Transitions and Chief Commercialization Officer. This public webinar will examine the innovation occurring with grid modernization, including physical infrastructure, grid management software, and efforts by all actors to increase the resilience and security of the grid.
Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary Sean Plankey from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response will open the session with a keynote address. Sarah Ladislaw (CSIS) will then provide opening remarks, followed by a moderated discussion with Juan Torres (NREL), Amit Ronen (advisor to Sen. Maria Cantwell), and Marissa Hummon (Utilidata) on various grid modernization initiatives and explain how each fits within the innovation chain, from basic science to commercialization and deployment.
