The Future of Energy: Grid Innovations
Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 4 pm MT
Watch the full episode

The architecture of America’s energy grid is evolving in new and exciting ways. As more and more renewables come online, scientists and utilities are working together to move away from older passive distribution models and instead create an active, optimized energy flow for homes and businesses. By implementing new technologies and smart building integrations, a more efficient grid can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and create resilience throughout the system. So what does the next generation of energy production look like, and what will it mean for consumers?

On Tuesday, Oct. 13, we’ll get an update on the latest in grid optimization and applied research from Kyri Baker, Assistant Professor of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder and Bryan Hannegan, President & CEO of Holy Cross Energy. They’ll discuss the innovative work happening here in Colorado, talk about challenges and opportunities ahead, and then answer viewer questions during a moderated Q&A session.

This free public webinar is a presentation of the Institute for Science & Policy and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. The session will also be streamed on Facebook.
