The Status of State Grid Modernization Efforts

March 9, 2018 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET

States are playing an important role in modernizing the nation’s electricity grid. In this webinar, two presentations discussed the range of activity taking place at the state level.

First, Autumn Proudlove, Manager of Policy Research at the North Carolina Clean Energy Technology Center, presented key findings from the most recent edition of her organization’s quarterly report on the 50 States of Grid Modernization. That report describes activities that took place in 2017 in 39 states plus the District of Columbia.

Then, Steven Hauser, CEO of the GridWise Alliance, presented the conclusions from the fourth annual Grid Modernization Index, which “assesses and ranks all 50 states and the District of Columbia based upon the degree to which they are moving toward a modernized electric grid.”

These presentations were followed by a Q&A with the audience.

This webinar was presented by the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) for the RPS Collaborative.
