The Changing Energy Grid
September 20th | 11 a.m. EST
The U.S. energy grid is in a state of flux, influenced by a wide range of factors: from changing energy sources and technological advances to government regulations. The rise of new technologies—like renewable energy, energy storage, and electric vehicles—is putting increasing pressure on its aging infrastructure, which is in need of a significant overhaul. Integration of smart grid technology offers considerable promise, but also creates new challenges, like a greater risk of cyberattacks.
In this webinar, we’ll assess the changing state of the U.S. energy grid and answer the following key questions:
- How will the increase in renewable energy capacity and the growth in electric vehicle sales affect the grid?
- What is smart grid technology, and what impact will it have going forward?
- How vulnerable is the grid to cyberattacks, and what can be done to reduce the risk?
- What federal legislation and regulations influence grid innovation?
Join National Journal Presentation Center analysts Julianna Bradley, Sean Lambert, and Taryn MacKinney, as well as National Journal Energy Correspondent Brian Dabbs, for an in-depth look at the issues surrounding the state of the U.S. energy grid.
