Association Webinars: Climate and Power System Reliability in the Aftermath of the Texas (ERCOT) Blackouts



Climate changes and policies are stressing the power grid while increasing its role in electrification of transportation, heating, and industrial processes. The recent catastrophic blackout in Texas (ERCOT) has underscored the importance of power system reliability and raises questions regarding markets, grid weatherization, renewable energy sources, among others. In this webinar, four speakers discuss these issues and their long-term economic and policy implications for the power sector.
