New technologies and policies are leading to substantial changes in the energy sector.  How can the Utilities of the Future be a key driver in decarbonizing our energy system?   How will the future electric grid enable customers to change how they purchase and sell energy? This Leaders in Energy event, in partnership with Resilient Virginia, will explore these questions and related topics to examine pathways to a new paradigm for the electric grid.  This will be an excellent opportunity to meet those in our Leaders in Energy community who are interested in and working on these issues.   Speakers:  Dr. John Caldwell, Edison Electric Institute’s Director of Economics, will discuss how the electric grid can evolve to one in which customers participate in energy transactions like buying and selling energy.  Cyril Draffin, MIT Energy Initiative, will overview a framework for regulatory, policy, and market reforms that foster utilities of the future.  Elizabeth Stein is an attorney in the Environmental Defense Fund’s Clean Energy Program and will present an overview of the potential for decarbonizing electric supply through grid modernization and distributed energy based on lessons learned to date from New York State’s Reforming the Energy Vision. Location: U.S. Navy Memorial, 701 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20004 (Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter stop on Metro’s Yellow and Green Lines is located directly in front of the EEI building.)
