2018 Annual Meeting Focuses on Driving Transformation Change

Energy, strategy, and finance experts from industry, government, academia, and policy convened at the annual meeting of the Joint Institute for Strategic Energy Analysis (JISEA), held April 4–5 at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) campus in Golden, Colorado. The first day of the meeting focused on clean energy innovation—changes to our energy system, implications for technology, policy and finance, and how innovation across the landscape is driving change. Day 2 focused on power sector transformation: how increased electrication of transportation and other services, combined with the decarbonization of power supplies, have been identified as critical elements for energy systems around the world.

Presentations and panel discussions focused on batteries and storage, renewables and industry, natural gas and electricity, and power systems transformation.
