The American energy revolution is transforming power production and redefining how users engage with the utility industry. In response to consumer preferences, technology innovation, economic incentives, state policies and federal regulation, the industry is becoming more distributed, digitized, democratized and decarbonized.
National Journal LIVE presents "Powering the 21st Century: Making the Grid Work for All Consumers" to explore Washington's role in encouraging energy innovation, the future of the grid and how best to ensure the benefits of new power generation methods are sustainable and extended to all communities.
Join us as we engage with the nation's policy makers, innovators, stakeholders and thought leaders in a robust conversation about grid modernization and the future of American energy.
