Electrification 2021: A Net Zero Energy System for All



Fortnightly Magazine - August 2021

EPRI's Electrification Virtual Forum Series was an epic gathering of three events held in May and June on the decarbonization that is here and coming, with two-week breaks in-between, giving time to digest the massive amounts of information. The PUF team was there and brought you all three.

In this issue, the PUF team brings you memorable moments from discussions on A Net-Zero Energy System for All, looking at updating the grid for an electrified economy and solving the most difficult decarbonization challenges, with unprecedented resiliency for everyone. Also presented is a conversation with EPRI's vice president for energy supply and low-carbon resources, Neva Espinoza, who ties the last Forum together.

The first of the two EPRI Forums looked at Building to Net Zero, which addressed decarbonization, affordability, and productivity with ambitious, equitable, and community-centered solutions.

The second Forum, Frontiers of e-Mobility, featured comprehensive collaboration and informative exchanges that enable progress on efficient, equitable, electric transportation solutions. These two Forums, along with conversations with EPRI's Mark Duvall and Ron Domitrovic, were featured in July PUF.
