The Climate Resilient Grid:A Forum on Energy, Climate and the Grid
Wednesday, June 14, 2017, noon
Thursday, June 15, 2017, 3:45 p.m. EDT
Asheville, NC, United States
The Climate Resilient Grid brings together thought leaders from industry, government and academia to demonstrate the value of environmental intelligence and climate data for bringing renewables into homes and businesses around the country. It will also explore the need to form partnerships to improve the resilience of our energy system that is in transition.
● Utilities executives share their perspectives on the current state of their grid, their climate risks and vulnerabilities and the future of renewables in their portfolio.
● Solution providers demonstrate how environmental information has been used in energy sales strategy, asset management, and load planning.
● Thought leaders discuss the critical role of renewables and the right mix of energy to build an adaptive infrastructure while reducing carbon dioxide.
Scientific experts from NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) and its partners CICS-NC interact with leaders from utilities, providers, and thought leaders about their services to develop climate-science based solutions to real energy sector challenges.
