From winter blackouts in Texas and wildfires on the West Coast to heat waves, flooding and severe hurricanes, today’s U.S. electrical grid faces many extreme weather conditions that it wasn’t designed to endure. This can result in major electrical interruptions with potentially catastrophic outcomes, particularly among vulnerable populations. The electricity powering our communities is only as reliable and resilient as the infrastructure that makes it possible. This panel discussion will explore the electrical grid and the forward-thinking needed to strengthen the grid for future extreme weather. You can attend this panel discussion in person or watch it on Youtube

This event is part of NC State Energy Week.
