Event Description

A panel of grid experts explaining why grid resiliency matters and how to mitigate events like wildfires in the era of climate change.

Our electric grid is in an imperative transition period. Power outages happen increasingly, either planned for safety reasons or unplanned due to unforeseen natural events (wildfires). The Oregon-based Bootleg fire from July 2021 brought the most populous and affluent US state to the brink of a blackout. In California alone, PG&E, Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric are expected to collectively spend more than $15 billion to reduce the threat of wildfires caused by their power grids through 2022, according to Greentech Media. Meanwhile, the grid needs to adapt to support an increased share of renewables which adds to the complexity of matching supply and demand. What can be done to remedy the situation?

This panel of grid experts will cover:

  • what is grid resiliency and why does it matter

  • the link between wildfires and grid resiliency

  • initiatives which help improve grid resiliency

  • Host Company/Organization Name
    • Women and Cleantech and Sustainability
  • Event type
