Practical Realities of the Clean Energy Transition

Practical Realities of the Clean Energy Transition

Host: Samantha Gilman

Guests: Neva Espinoza, Vice President of Energy Supply and Low Carbon Resources, EPRI

Achieving bold decarbonization goals requires transforming how economies around the world make, move, and use energy. However, the net-zero energy transition must be carefully balanced as we progress to help ensure affordability and reliability for all. At the end of the day, navigating the transition before us comes down to considering practical realities of the road ahead.

Join us for a conversation with EPRI’s vice president of energy supply and low carbon resources, Neva Espinoza, as she discusses the practical realities that the electric industry face now and into the decades to come. From optionality to infrastructure to scaling technologies, the energy transition will require collaboration and an open mind.

Wildfires & Climate: Building for Resilience

Wildfires & Climate: Building for Resilience

Host: Samantha Gilman

Guests: Erik Ela, program manager in Integrated Grid & Energy Systems, EPRI; Agatha Kazdan, technical leader, Advanced Buildings and Communities, EPRI.

Threats to the power delivery systems and the built environment from climate change and increasingly frequent extreme weather events means that the energy systems and structures of the future must be more prepared to withstand weather-related dangers. For more than a decade, EPRI has conducted research to increase resiliency and mitigate wildfire impacts through infrastructure modernization and process improvement.

Join EPRI Current host Samantha Gilman as she welcomes two EPRI experts, Erik Ela and Agatha Kazdan, to share how resilience and the changing climate has directly impacted their lives, and what EPRI is doing to support the development of resilient housing.
