About the event


The next few years will be critical for the energy transition in the U.S. and globally. Utilities, state regulators, and federal legislators and agencies have all set renewable energy goals for 2030 and 2050. The technologies put into service over these next few years will go a long way towards determining if these technologies will be the platform for achieving these reduced or zero carbon goals. 

We will hear from two leaders at the forefront of the energy transition during this session. Featured speakers will share their experiences and insights from: 

-The U.S. Air Force's goals are to reduce carbon, assure reliability and resiliency, and be able to operate off the grid during times of national emergencies. 

-A leader from SMUD’s R&D team will share SMUD’s progress and lessons learned in deploying long-duration storage technologies as a part of their plan to achieve a carbon-free grid by 2030.

Key Takeaways

-Gain insights on technologies critical to the energy transition, including microgrids and long-duration storage.

-Learn how these new technologies are part of a broader energy transition.

-Hear lessons learned and successes thus far, including impacts on how to organize around new technologies being deployed. 


-Brian R. O’Leary, DAF, GS-14, Energy Program Analyst, Air Force Office of Energy Assurance
