Energy stakeholders are invited to attend a briefing on
innovation in electric grid technologies on June 18 from 10–11:30 a.m., hosted by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), in partnership with the Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI). The briefing will be held in Room 428A of the Russell Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill.
Speakers from the Department of Energy (DOE), G&W Electric, Siemens, and Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) will discuss the concept and purpose of the DOE’s Quadrennial Energy Review and the need to reform energy policy to strengthen the nation’s electric grid. They will also discuss the technologies available today that can help make the grid stronger and more resilient.
