The grid and “grid modernization” is key to achieving our emissions reduction targets as we replace the use of fossil fuels with clean electricity. The grid is more than physical wires and electric generation. It must be operated so that electricity is delivered reliably and affordably on a moment to moment basis.
With over forty years’ experience in the energy industry, Phil Hanser provided an informative and lively introduction to the grid. Mr. Hanser’s presentation sets the stage for two more in-depth presentations on grid operation and governance scheduled over the next month.
The slides from the presentation are here and the video is here.
