CLOSING GENERAL SESSION: Electrification: The Wave of the Future or a Policy Choice?

Tuesday, May 7 2019  3:45 - 5:00 PM
Broadly, electrification is the shift to electricity at the point of consumption.  New and improving technologies (e.g., EVs; storage and data farms; more industrial uses); the move to renewables; rising levels of distributed energy; and real customer preferences (e.g., on line shopping) are driving increasing electrification across the US.  All this makes us even more reliant on secure supplies of power. If electrification is inexorable, then what are the impacts and possible risks for customers, companies, and policymakers to take into account? How or should regulators and legislators attempt to guide this transition in the market, and if so, how?
