The GreenGrid Security Series IV: Can we build a low carbon, but rock solid grid?

Date & Time: September 29, 11- 12:30 EDT

This webinar is part of the Global Resilience Commission GreenGrid Security Series focusing on resilience actions to avoid or address energy emergencies and their cross-sector and potentially worldwide impacts. 

Extreme hurricanes, mega-fires, 200-year floods. Climate change is here with a vengeance, and “greening” the power grid is critical – if we can get it right.  Can we convert to low carbon energy sources without risking more frequent, potentially large-scale blackouts? Can we build a green energy future that actually enhances grid resilience and security?

Our lives depend on the answer.

Join us as some of the sector’s most powerful and respected leaders consider this question in a panel discussion, and respond to your thoughts in the forum that follows immediately

GreenGrid Security IV: The eye-opening conclusion to the four-part GreenGrid Security Series.
