Grid Resiliency: Policy and Practice

Please join us for a policy roundtable addressing the risks, policies, solutions and opportunities for enhancing grid resiliency and securing long-term reliability. Policy makers and private sector participants will discuss the state of the United States’ electric grid and explore the technological and regulatory challenges facing the public and private sectors. The two discussions will include the following confirmed panelists:

Policy Panel

Following the panel discussions, attendees will have a chance to interact with each other and the founders of several local startup companies that are providing innovative solutions to help create a resilient electric grid.  Featured companies include:

  • Tumalow
  • Aquanta
  • BEM
  • DataKwip

Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has initiated a proceeding to holistically examine the resilience of the bulk power system. Regardless of the outcome, the process has kicked open the discussion of grid resiliency in terms of technical solutions, policies, and the need for price support for existing generation resources. This session is ideal for federal, state and local policy makers, electric grid technology innovators, power generators and distributors and investors looking towards the future of electricity distribution in the U.S.
