Webinar: Averting the Next Blackouts: Demand-Side Solutions to Winter Peaks

  • This event has passed.

April 15, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The devastating Texas blackouts provided a fresh reminder of the challenge of meeting electric demand in unusually cold weather. These threats are expected to increase as extreme weather events become more frequent and as more home heating is electrified. An ACEEE report to be released next week assesses the future of winter peaks in electricity use and shows how implementing energy efficiency and other demand-side measures could mitigate the threat, even in cold regions of the country. During a webinar on April 15 from 1-2 PM ET, ACEEE researchers will present the findings, and an expert panel, including Maggie Shober, Director of Utility Reform at the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, will discuss recommendations for policymakers, grid planners, regulators, utilities, and efficiency program administrators.
