The Electric System and Clean Energy

Thursday, April 28, 2011

2:00-3:30 PM EDT

Reducing energy demand and increasing renewable energy generation can lead to many benefits, including increased electric system reliability, better environmental quality and human health, as well as cost savings and job creation. The April Tech Forum will be the first in a three-part series on Assessing the Multiple Benefits of Clean Energy, and will cover the Electricity System and the System-related Benefits of Clean Energy Policies and Programs. Miles Keogh, Director of Grants & Research, National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) will provide an overview of how the electricity grid works and how energy efficiency and renewable energy policies can improve grid security, diversity and reliability. Brian Turner, Assistant Executive Officer for Federal Climate Policy for the California Air Resources Board, will illustrate how a state's actions can shape the electricity system's infrastructure and development with a presentation on California's clean energy and climate-related policies and their effect on the grid. Subsequent webinars will cover the emissions and economic benefits of clean energy and how to estimate them. Paul Sotkiewicz from PJM Interconnection will provide an introduction on how PJM coordinates the movement of electricity to 13 states through their expertise in power systems operation, planning, and economics.
