Please join Vanderbilt's Energy, Environment and Land Use Program, Energy and Environmental Law Society, and Program in Environmental and Sustainability Studies for an engaging lecture by Dr. Marilyn A. Brown, a Regents and Brook Byers Professor of Sustainable Systems in the School of Public Policy at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
The way electricity is generated, delivered, and used is undergoing a significant transformation. Distributed energy resources, many of them on the consumer side of the meter, are expanding rapidly. In this talk I explore the outlook for our power systems as distributed technologies advance and consumer demands converge. How might these trends impact grid reliability and greenhouse gas emissions, and what impact might future policies and business models have?
