Jennie Chen, Senior Counsel for Federal Energy Policy, will participate in "Grid Modernization: Infrastructure for the Future," an online panel that will focus on the changes needed to construct a modern electric grid. There are significant edge-of-grid challenges that require updated infrastructure to allow for wind and other renewable energy across North Carolina and beyond. How can electric distribution between rural to urban locations be addressed? Our existing grid does not allow for robust renewable capacity. What are the different variables that need to change to enable the construction of a modern grid?
The event will include opportunities for Q&A with the panel.
