In May 2020, Peter Fox-Penner published Power After Carbon: Building a Clean, Resilient Grid. This important book emphasizes “the indispensability of large power systems, battery storage, and scalable carbon-free power technologies, along with the grids and markets that will integrate them.” It discusses how the electricity system can decarbonize even as regulators and electric utilities “continue to deliver on other key performance objectives.” This webinar focused on findings and recommendations from the book that are especially relevant to state policymakers who are considering strategies for moving towards 100% clean energy for their state’s electricity sector. Peter Fox-Penner directs Boston University’s Institute for Sustainable Energy and is a Professor in BU’s Questrom School of Business, Chief Strategy Officer for Energy Impact Partners, and an advisor and former chairman of The Brattle Group.
This webinar was presented by the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) on behalf of the 100% Clean Energy Collaborative.
