Energy Resilience in the Age of Climate Change

Extreme weather and wildfires are impacting energy infrastructure across the country and world. Technologies such as behind-the-meter energy storage and intelligent software are emerging to help companies and communities anticipate outages, and keep the power flowing. Our experts will address how companies are planning for climate risks that could challenge energy infrastructure, arguments that bolster the business case for building in resiliency, and the available distributed energy resources that ensure continuity of operations. 

 

Among the things you’ll learn:

  • How cities and companies are partnering to drive innovation

  • The motivations and enablers, including sensors and artificial intelligence, of microgrids

  • Why the secret sauce of energy storage is software, not just the batteries

  • Approaches to predicting and mapping areas of concern
