Access Recorded Webinar

According to a 2018 special report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, global emissions will need to drop to net zero by 2050 to limit global temperature increase to less than 1.5°C above the pre-industrial level. Though there has been much debate about the best way to achieve this decarbonization, one thing is certain: combating climate change will depend on continuing the shift to electricity generation with no or very-low carbon emissions and accelerating electrification.

Transportation and building energy use are critical areas for electrification in the United States. With increased load, the grid will need to be strengthened and modernized. In each of these sectors, opportunities abound for a range of companies, from startups to corporate giants, to develop new technologies and deploy new business models.

Panelists:

- Robyn Beavers, CEO & Co-Founder, Blueprint Power
- Patty DiOrio, Vice President, US Strategy, National Grid
- Peter Fox Penner, Founder and Director, BU Institute for Sustainable Energy and Chief Strategy Officer, Energy Impact Partners
- Judith Judson, Vice President, Distributed Energy Systems, Ameresco
- Colin Murchie, Senior Director of Business Development, EVgo
- Peter Kelly-Detwiler, Principal, NorthBridge Energy Partners (moderator)

With increased load, the grid will need to be strengthened and modernized. In each of these sectors, opportunities abound for a range of companies, from startups to corporate giants, to develop new technologies and deploy new business models.

There are some immense opportunities here, and whether those are leveraged and tackled by legacy utilities or startups who see a gap not being filled is one of the most compelling trends to watch in the coming decade!
