Event Recap | Energy Opportunities Speakers Series: Promising Innovations for Our Energy Future

On June 7th, 2023, we hosted our event “Promising Innovations for Our Energy Future” at the University of Texas LBJ School of Public Affairs. This event featured a presentation by Commissioner Will McAdams and a panel discussion by subject matter experts Jonathan Thompson, Andrew Higgins, and Margo Weisz, moderated by Doug Lewin.

Commissioner McAdams and the panelists discussed the investment in distributed energy resources including rooftop solar, demand response, and battery storage. The presenters also discussed how the virtual power plant pilot negotiated by the PUCT leverages this combined investment, and how to ensure that households that contend with low-moderate incomes can access and benefit from these energy innovations as they increase grid reliability and resiliency.

If you were unable to join us in-person, we have included a video of the event below.
