2021 Annual Member Meeting Highlights

Grid Forward members came together on June 10, 2021  for our second virtual annual meeting! We caught up on organization initiatives, elected board members, and had a chance to enjoy seeing each other, if only on screen.

We also announced the Grid Innovation Award winners for 2021. Congratulations to Esource, Snohomish PUD (right) and Carl Imhoff of PNNL.

After announcing the winners of the Grid Innovator Awards we assembled a panel to expand on Bryce Yonker’s Utility Dive article entitled Beyond solar and wind: 10 steps to meet President Biden’s clean electricity target. Listen in to three industry viewpoints on grid decarbonization:

  • Michael Pesin, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Dept. of Energy
