Energy Infrastructure: What is it and how can we get it right? (Boston) EcoSalonTuesday, December 2, 2014 (12:00 PM - 2:00 PM Eastern)
The investments we make in our energy infrastructure today will determine our future for generations to come. How will the grid of the future handle a massive increase in distributed generation? Can we meet our climate goals? How can we make the grid more resilient? Will grid-scale storage emerge as a cost-effective solution? Will off shore wind save billions of dollars right here in Massachusetts?
Please join Dr. Karen Wayland, Deputy Director, Office of Energy Policy & Systems Analysis, Department of Energy (DOE) and Kit Kennedy, Director, Energy & Transportation Program, NRDC, to discuss nothing less than the future of energy -- the infrastructure, policies and actions to meet our energy, climate, reliability and security needs.
