The future of power is here! And there's much to be excited about: a rise in global demand, an increased focus on our environment, and the adaptation of digital solutions that optimize performance. But creating a sustainable, digital, and stable grid comes with challenges. High penetration of renewable energy generation in the grid can cause unwanted effects that can be difficult to correct. Nicholas Institute expert Luana Marangon Lima will join Siemens Energy for a moderated discussion as they present an overview of the US power transmission grid, why the grid needs to be modernized, and how you can help.

Panelists:

  • Matt Neal, Vice President of Grid Solutions North America, Siemens Energy
     
  • Kevin Vallecorsa, Director of Engineering-Grid Solutions North America, Siemens Energy
     
  • Luana Marangon Lima, Assistant Professor of the Practice in Energy & Data Analytics, Nicholas School of the Environment
