Decarbonizing the Grid - An Interactive Workshop Series

Many companies and countries have pledged to become carbon-neutral. These commitments are driving new and more aggressive market design, systems engineering and technology innovation. Oversimplifying somewhat, the most promising strategy can be defined as “electrify energy demand” while “decarbonizing the electricity sector”. 

Over the course of six workshops our expert panelists  will focus on how we can enable a grid that facilitates the integration of renewables, DERs, expansion of demand and decline of fossil fueled power supply. There is an element of policy in the solution but it is primarily driven by market design, systems engineering and technology innovation.  We will address the roles of grid interconnection, policy, storage integration and cooridination of demand.

 

This series, hosted by Bits & Watts faculty co-directors Arun Majumdar and Charlie Kolstad, is free and open to the public, registration required.
