June 19, 2020 2:00 pm — 3:00 pm

Presented by the Energy Bar Association and co-sponsored by ELI, Women in Government Relations, and the D.C. Bar Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources Community

Electrification—the adoption of electric end-use technologies to replace other forms of energy—is occurring at an ever-increasing rate. This phenomenon is being driven in large part by utility investment in smart grid infrastructure and applications, the electrification of vehicles, the proliferation of IoT technologies and more energy-efficient devices; the development of smart communities; and state and local RPS requirements. In this webinar participants learned about the growth in electrification, its beneficial nature, and the regulatory and policy issues that have been raised at both the Federal and the state levels.
