A successful energy transition will require rapid, effective, resilient, and equitable electrification. While researchers are working out the technical details of how to make this happen, policymakers are trying to foster a financial and regulatory environment in which it can take place. This webinar will focus on both of these efforts and their interactions with each other. Leading experts will highlight cutting-edge research on the benefits of, impacts from, and barriers to resilient electrification, especially in low-income and rural communities. The Director of the Department of Energy's Office of State and Community Energy Programs will discuss how his office is working to promote electrification. The discussion will address initial findings from ongoing research projects as well as potential connections between research and policymaking in the electrification space.

Speakers will include:

  • Dr. Ana Dyreson - Michigan Technological University
  • Dr. Sergio Castellanos - University of Texas at Austin
  • Dr. Paulo Cesar Tabares-Velasco - Colorado School of Mines
  • Dr. Henry C. McKoy, Jr - U.S. Department of Energy

This webinar is part of a series highlighting environmental and energy research projects funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Stay tuned for upcoming events!
