PES Day Webinar: Technical Pathways to and Economic Issues with Decarbonizing Electricity Production


IEEE PES Region 2 welcomes you to join this PES Day webinar provided by Dr. Ramteen Sioshansi, a Professor of Integrated Systems Engineering at The Ohio State Universty (OSU). 1 PDH will be provided to attendees who will be tracked and proven to be in attendance for this entire webinar.

Abstract: This talk explores two important issues in decarbonizing electricity production. The first is understanding the potential role of renewable-energy technologies to decarbonize electricity production while maintaining reliable supply and the role of energy storage therein. The second concerns economic and market-design issues that arise from the use of different policy mechanisms to drive decarbonization of the electric power system.
