IEEE Springfield Meeting – IEEE-USA Activities in Energy Policy
December 7, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Last year Congress passed a comprehensive energy bill aimed at modernizing the electric grid, providing funding for renewable energy research and development, addressing energy storage issues, increasing access to new nuclear power sources, recycling and reusing critical minerals, strengthening carbon capture capabilities and improving federal tech transfer and industry partnership programs. This talk will discuss this latest bill and provide an overview of IEEE-USA activities in energy policy. Of particular interest to IEEE-USA’s energy policy committee are issues relating to the grid. Modernizing the grid will require improving both physical and cyber security as well as increasing access to renewable and nuclear energy sources. Our guest, Aline McNaull of IEEE-USA, will provide an overview of how IEEE-USA works with Congress and the Administration to address these challenges.
