Venue: Virtual

After a century of incremental change, the utility industry is undergoing a massive transition from centralized, fossil energy sources to distributed, renewable energy sources. Many utilities have clean energy goals, often driven or supported by public utility mandates designed to accelerate this transition. So, what now? Is this transition a question of meeting regulatory requirements for clean energy, or is there more to this? How will this transition impact asset management practices? How does a utility make decisions around large, grid-scale renewables that require building more transmission infrastructure versus deploying localized energy sources? Where is the balance between these alternatives?

At some point, each utility must make critical decisions for its network area and plan accordingly. With so many challenges and uncertainties, are there ways to avoid repeating energy transition mistakes and instead accelerate planning and actions to keep up with the pace of change?

This session will explore these and other questions to provide insights and guidelines for utility leaders amid this transition. Featured panelists are from the Electricity Transition Hub, a program of the Canadian Renewable Energy Association, the Utility 2030 Collaborative, and a special guest utility panelist.

Emily Banks: Technical Writer, Electricity Transition Hub Phil McKay: Director, Electricity Transition Hub Mike Smith: Principal, Utility 2030 Collaborative (Moderator) Utility Panelist (TBD)

This session is available for U2030 members only. If you are not a member, you can request a guest pass by emailing [email protected]. However, please note that we reserve the right to deny your request.
