FUELING OUR FUTURE: Blackout: Security and the Electric Grid
6:30 PM - 7:00 PM

FUELING OUR FUTURE: Blackout: Security and the Electric Grid

Thursday, April 2, 6.30–7.45 p.m.

With seven billion people in the world (nine billion projected by 2050), many of whom live in rapidly developing countries, the need for modern technologies with their attendant energy demands is increasing at an exponential rate. Will it be possible to provide sufficient energy for this generation and the next? How will the energy race change global economies and politics?

Join the Center for Global Affairs Associate Professor and Academic Chair Carolyn Kissane, and experts in the field to discuss the changing landscape of global energy: its potential, challenges, and impact on how we live today.

Whether by power surges, storm surges, or even criminal or terrorist sabotage, the electric grid faces many threats. It is a critical part of our infrastructure, and a large scale outage could be crippling with profound ramifications. Both government and the private sector are looking for ways to both avoid disruption and mitigate any damage should there be a widespread shutdown. Policy makers are proposing new industry standards, and innovations such as microgrids offer alternatives for critical services.

Join John Bradley, Associate VP, Sustainability, Energy and Technical Services, New York University for a conversation on the emerging solutions and threats facing the electricity distribution sector.

Seating is available on a first come first serve basis until we reach capacity. Preregistration does not guarantee entry.
