The Short Circuit: Making Sense of the Power Grid In A Changing World - On Demand

About This Webinar

The power grid is complex and rapidly evolving. Chances are, you are an expert in one specific area. And you are good at what you do. You also have a keen desire to understand what’s happening across the grid, and how those trends and developments may affect you and your industry. But you have a day job. You don’t have time to do the research, and besides, there’s simply too much disconnected information out there. You want to understand the major trends and technologies and the overall context.

This course will short-circuit your learning process, efficiently and effectively providing you with the critical information you want and need to know - in just four hours.

Learn from 30-year industry veteran, author, and story-teller Peter Kelly-Detwiler who will offer the 4-hour Short-Circuit workshop explaining the critical aspects of power markets, and how the key drivers of decarbonization, decentralization, and digitalization are changing everything. This course was born from years of experience delivering workshops, research for a forthcoming book, and over 300 Forbes.com articles on the power sector.

The same energy professionals who have attended past workshops at conferences across the country:

Utility employees, staff of renewables companies, investors, public advocates, regulatory staff, lawyers – in short, everybody in the electric energy industry who wishes they knew more about the space in which we are all professionally engaged.
