This fall’s conference will feature keynote speaker Alison Silverstein, energy system expert and principal author of the 2018 Department of Energy study that found the retirements of coal-fired and nuclear power plants are not compromising the resilience and reliability of the electric grid. Leaders from some of the Northwest’s largest utilities will discuss the challenges and opportunities facing the Bonneville Power Administration. Expert panelists will explore a new vision for the Northwest electric system in which the integration of emerging customer-side resources will enable utilities to manage and shape electricity demand as well as supply in order to achieve an efficient, low-carbon energy system.
