From renewables and battery storage to electric vehicles and smart devices, the rapid evolution and deployment of innovative new technologies has the potential to make our energy future more efficient, more reliable and cleaner than ever before, while also raising new technical and policy challenges. Ongoing changes in the power sector, namely the changing mix of electricity generation and the stresses faced by the system in recent events such as Hurricane Sandy and the polar vortex, underscore the need for continued investment across the system in order to ensure a resilient system.
BPC hosted an expert panel discussion on the current advanced technology investments being made to our electric grid and where they fit into the context of an evolving power sector, which technologies hold the most promise and where regulators and policymakers should focus their attention.
