Introducing the Northwest Energy Resiliency Summit in Seattle, June 12th

The team at Smart Grid Northwest is very excited to announce its new event, the 2018 Northwest Energy Resiliency Summit, on June 12th at the Pacific Tower in Seattle.

At this unique one-day meeting, you will participate in keynote presentations, panel discussions and working sessions focused on helping regional stakeholders to develop resiliency solutions for energy systems in our region: Washington, Oregon, Idaho and BC. This event will dig deep into some our most critical topics: developing microgrids at critical facilities, preparing for cyber resiliency, asset monitoring, rapid restoration, all-hazard resilience, and finding metrics for tracking and quantifying resiliency efforts.

Smart Grid Northwest will also hold its Annual Meeting and an evening networking social on June 11th, the day before the Summit.

The Northwest Energy Resiliency Summit is organized into three sections that address the key questions that lead to improving resiliency across energy systems in the Northwest.

  1. Identifying Priorities: How can we best determine the areas that need attention or are most vulnerable?
  2. Valuing Options: How do we establish quantifiable and defensible figures for solutions?
  3. Deploying Solutions: What are the best practices for implementation of various technologies?

Get the details here.

The Summit will be limited to the first 150 people to register, so register soon to hold your spot.

Many thanks to our initial sponsors. If you’d like to support the event, or have ideas for topics or speakers, please email Bryce Yonker at by@smartgridnw.org.
