Electrification is being considered across all sectors as the next phase of moving to a clean energy economy.  The theory makes good sense but as electric vehicles, heat pumps and other technologies increase in market share, is the grid ready?

This EBC Energy Resources Webinar will address the grid side impacts of moving toward electrification.  Panelists will provide perspectives and experiences on preparing grid infrastructure for the increase in electricity demand.

A robust panel discussion with the audience will conclude the webinar.

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (2.5 training contact hours). Certificates are automatically provided via email link for registered attendees at the conclusion of the webinar.
