The nation's energy mix is changing quickly. The retirement of coal power plants, growth of natural gas, rising renewable energy production and the threat of nuclear plant retirement have created an environment that may pose a risk to a reliable electric grid. The cold of last winter's polar vortex placed great strain on the grid in much of the Midwestern and Northeastern U.S., bringing some to question whether the current mix, combined with existing infrastructure and market design, will make it more difficult to keep the lights on during severe weather or other events that may challenge the grid. The webinar looks at the risks posed by the changing mix, explores how the polar vortex event severely challenged some parts of the grid and discusses a variety of solutions. Speakers include representatives from regional transmission organizations, including ISO-New England and PJM Interconnection.
